Victor shows how to make a tealight holder from a soda can


Victor Amoussou, an artist from Benin who lives also in Finland, shows how to make a tealight holder from a soda can.

Victor likes recycling. He made the holder in a workshop organized and instructed by artist/consultant Hanna Rautio at Trash Pavilion (Roskalavapaviljonki) an experimental building and citizen activity project running the last two weeks of August as part of Helsinki Festival. (The final result shown in the last picture is make by Hanna.)

    Monesti nää Afrikkalaiset on hyvinkin käteviä käsistään🙂 Mitä vaan pystyy fiksaamaan tai luomaan. Ihailtavaa🙂

    • Käden taidot ja visuaalinen hahmottaminen on todellakin paremmin hallussa monella afrikkalaisella verrattuna meihin täällä pohjolan degeneroituneessa ympäristössä kasvaneisiin. – Mutta löytyy osaamista täältä läheltäkin. Tässä työpajassa ohjaaja ja ideoija oli Hanna Rautio.

      Kiitos kommentista, Eli!
