Art is not an end in itself for artist Kalle Hamm from Finland and his colleague Dzamil Kamanger from Iranian Kurdistan. Their works occupy an intermediate zone between art, design and handicraft, and are often sparked off everyday things.
In their works, the artist duo Hamm and Kamanger explore cultural interaction and the global movements of plants and people. Their themes range from imported colonial produce to stories from abandoned Iranian village.
Kalle & Dzamil first came to Fittja during Fittja Open 2011 when the artists performed Pizzeria Babylon at the local pizzeria and grill, as part of the opening event. They later came back in 2012 doing a another collaboration with the pizzeria Take Away-Art and later in the year, they participated in Fittja Open 2012 with the an adaptation of the work Immigrant Garden installed by the garden allotment.
