Vesa-Pekka Rannikko’s public work in Vantaa

Vesa-Pekka Rannikko’s commissioned work Feather and Stars was unveiled in Koivukylä, Vantaa in November 2018. The work has two parts: Feather is a sculpture made of painted and polished stainless steel, attached to a railing of a concrete bridge. Stars is a video projection on the façade of an apartment building, where it is shown between sunset and sunrise throughout the year. The work consists of five different projections, each shown on a separate day. The imagery of the projections is based on myths, stories and fantasies about flying.

Feather and Stars is the first completed work of a set of public artworks in the Koivukylä area commissioned from Rannikko by the city of Vantaa.
