Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen: STEP BY STEP
February 24 – April 29, 2017

“Step by Step is the second chapter in Konttinen’s 50 year career dedicated to celebrating the working class. The first, Byker – now on view at the Tate Modern Switch House – depicts a vibrant multi-generational neighborhood prior to the demolition of its estate housing. In Step by Step the community’s avocational activities and conversations are explored within the challenges of an industrial and post-industrial environment. The maternal bonding, self-expression and confidence provided by this joyful outlet nurture the girls and women when few other options for advancement or escape are available. ”
