"No man is an island, entire of it self;  Every man is a peice of the continent, a part of the main".

 

This expression is a qutaion from a poum by John Donne from the seventeenth century. It is an expression emphasizing in a person's connections to his or her surroundings and or other persons.

Two Chilean aetists specialized in carving horns and two Swedish artists specialized in metalsmithing and the preservation of organic materials, set out to explore the enigma of Easter Island together.  On one of the most isolated island in the world, located 2,000 miles off the Chilean coast they begun their journey into unknoe territories.  Nowadyas in the tentey-first century,  humans have the possilibity of accessing the most remote places of the earth. We can encounter and make unlikely constellations and connections so therefore everyone and everywhere is an island.  Nothing is carved in stone or permanent.  Four artists with a diveristy of cultural and atistic backgrounds united and explored familiar and unfamiliar grounds.  What connects them is their passion and curiosity for the transformation of traditional crafts and materials.
