  • MARJA DE JONG - NETHERLANDS/FINLAND - COLLABORATION PROJECT CROSSROADS SAKSALANHARJU

  • The international collaboration project CROSSROADS SAKSALANHARJU has started in August 2009.
    In August the first two artists were exploring how to collaborate in artistic way and to find inspiration from the environment and each other.

    The Dutch visual artist Marja de Jong is born in the Netherlands and has moved to Finland in 2003. She studied art and art education at the art academy of Tilburg. Her participation in the collaboration project CROSSROADS SAKSALANHARJU is based on her own artistic work and the experience with pioneering in new cultural societies. The influence of language, landscape, community are elements which create new artistic conditions. The exchange in ideas, vision and practice are fundamental parts of the collaboration project. The cross-border will go in different directions.

    Marja de Jong will participate in March 2010 together with Tiina Mielonen and Alexander Nikitin.
