Peace
My final work deals with the controversies of peace, which I illustrate with my childhood stories and later experiences. Themes of the work move around lost Carelia, immigration, identity and memory.
Installation, time machine-like image of a living room in the 1970’s. Lost, fairytale-like Carelia has filled the room.
In the paintings illusion and realism mixes into a multilayered pictures of dreams and peace. The top of a drawer is covered with small flags. Inside the drawer, there are hidden treasures: photos, written messages, secrets. A documentary film is looping on the television. Welcome to the unreachable, non-perfect peace time machine.
