    Descriptive info: :.. The Humbug Tent.. Humbug.. Shadow Of The Magician.. Book.. Each era has wonders typical for its time.. The first moving images were miraculous for those who experienced them.. I had my first experience in the world of illusions in my youth.. My brother died in a car accident and my family found comfort in spiritualistic séances.. Through this sort of humbug we got him back for a moment.. In the winter of 2008 I went to  ...   one who had shown me the fascinating ghost house and it became a site for play and adventures.. As I now looked in through one of the windows in the outhouses, a totally new world appeared to me.. The story of a dead magician and a part of Finnish circus history was to be found amid junk and scraps, pigment and dust.. This project brings some forgotten stories and perishable objects back to life for a short moment..

    Descriptive info: 1/3.. Last year I found some old tourist badges from my childhood and I remembered my teenage dreams about travelling all around the world.. I got the idea to make a dress of these dreams and at the same time a dress of power.. National Dress includes the dilemma of the world today with possibilities of fulfilling dreams and yet being conscious about the consequences our acts of freedom may have.. Most of the badges and streamers in  ...   these markets to search for surprises, making trips that are cheap and enjoyable.. "National Dress" was inspired by Sami culture and the village Karasjok in Norway and "Female Tourist Uniform" by Spain.. The pieces were made for the group exhibition HUUTOurism!, an exchange project that some of us active members in the artist driven Galleria Huuto collective were organizing between Sami Artist Center in Karasjok, Norway and the artist collective La Sala Naranja and Forja Arte in Valencia, Spain..

    Descriptive info: TAPETILLA (IN THE PUBLIC EYE).. Installation.. Video.. 1/2.. The name of the exhibition, "Tapetilla", is an idiomatic expression which cannot be translated literally into English.. "Tapetti" means "wallpaper" in Finnish, and the expression "tapetilla" means and is used to describe anything that is in the public eye – hence the English name of the exhibition.. Although wallpaper is an essential material in the works of this exhibition, it's unfortunately rather impossible to include the word "wallpaper" in the English name.. (Translator's note) Following the outbreak of the Iraq war in March 2003, the media were suddenly filled with real-time news and pictures featuring both people and a country ravaged by war.. All over the world, the incidents were being followed via newscasts, and the horrors of war were delivered by the media.. At the time, I was  ...   forget what they see so as to get a peaceful night's sleep.. With the war in the public eye, year after year, I was inspired by the idea of an installation in which the war pictures I had collected would be printed on wallpaper.. Researching the history of wallpaper and the Finnish expression "olla tapetilla" ("be in the public eye") made me even more interested.. The phrase is centuries-old: In the medieval ages, for instance, important documents were often presented on tables covered with tapestries.. These tapestries, which were often hung on walls, too, were the first wallpapers.. The exhibition consists of a room, the walls of which have been papered by decorative, hand-printed, unique wallpapers; old furniture and paintings; and photographs as well as picture compilations having to do with the ones I collected from the newspapers..
