A crumbly boulder travelled to Helsinki aboard the last ice age, landing in Kaivopuisto some 10 000 years ago. Perhaps its glacial travels started involuntarily or maybe it wanted to see the world. Decorated with a plaque, this geological deposit sits today in a park by the sea.
A party is now called to celebrate the flowing journeys of masses around the world. Rapakivi is a crumbly granite rock, and a Finnish word that doesn’t need translating. The crumbling crumbs are each called ‘Moro’, which translate casually as ‘Howdy’. We’ll be eating morsels of Rapakivi and transporting the Moros within our bodies to new destinations, just like ice age did.
The party will gather to reflect on the flow of masses, of all kinds, inanimate, animate, inconsequential and dramatic. May the 17th of August 2017 be a celebration of every single siirtolohkare around, whether human, mineral or animal."
