Valekuolema – Suspended Animation
Galleria Rajatila, Tampere
The show contains mixed media works – videos, object collages, sculptures and something else. My source material is objects I’ve collected in my previous life – audio and video tapes, toys, records, letters etc.
By working on these pieces I study matter and identity. How objects and memory affect each other, and how they together affect the person. Do memories make objects more than mere things? What do objects tell about us, how do they define and bind us? Which is more important: to own or to relinquish?
