Open Enrollment: An Afternoon with Miina Äkkijyrkkä

23 Feb

My newest post for the Art:21 blog Open Enrollment was published today here. Read my interview with the Finnish artist Miina Äkkijyrkkä to hear her thoughts about being an artist in Finland and her longstanding love of cows.

    Perhaps you should have asked Miina about Josie’s refusal to moooooo when she sees cows. She may have some deep insight, given that they are her muses.

      I really believe that Josie knows the exact noises that cows make but is consciously refusing to mooooooo. And by the way, the saga continues. Yesterday I received an e-mail written in ALL CAPS in an entertaining mix of Finnish and English from the mystical Lady of the Cattle.
