Tomas Klassnik & Riitta Ikonen

Film produced for art exhibition - Sparked

Documentary and art film created for Tomas Klassnik and Riitta Ikonen as part of the Sparked exhibition at View Tube next to the Olympic Park. Sparked is a series of exhibitions inspired by Art in the Park, the Olympic Delivery Authority programme of public art commissions in the London 2012 Olympic Park.

With 'We Made That', Klassnik and Ikonen created Fantasticology, a series of wildflower meadows, which act as a floral celebration of the industrial heritage of the Olympic Site.

Their Sparked exhibition, From Factories to Flowers explores the physical landscape as an organic canvas, looking at biological drawing devices, a giant seedbrush, hidden paths and the UK industrial landscape and heritage.

Two films were made for this project, a short documentary accompanying the exhibition to explain the themes, and a second performance art piece with the artists and their 'seedbrush'.
