Kaarina Ormio (FI): Princess Algieba

The joint project Princess Betelgeuze, Princess Algieba and Princess Bellatrix Travel Around the Baltic Sea of Kaarina Ormio, Elin T Sørensen (NO) and Jaan Pärnamäe (EST) began in 1997. Having arrived from the stars the two fairytale princesses and prince have visited Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Eastern Karelia, the area of the Vepse, Åland, Swedish Lapland, Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia and the Livonians in Courland. We are expecting princess Algieba to arrive in Kuopio. With her piece the artist hopes to make people believe more of the existence of the fairy-tale and to perceive the suspicious nature of reality.
