"the luggage" project was born in december - related to a possible group exhibition along with other environmental artists in TAIK.
the idea behind it is to create and represent an inner and complex world inside a relatively small space like a hand luggage. the constant flow of everyday life - the continuos moving from a place to another makes the matkalaukku something even more precious and dear: what will I decide to bring along? what will I collect during my journey? this small box with handles carries not only material stuff but especially memories, sensations and new ideas.
• sneak peek of my matkalaukku:
✻ the photographs and letter pages are what I have carried along and collected for the past few years - from left to right city landscapes and people give place to the nature landscapes and ocean pieces. what do people mean to me? what does nature mean instead?
✻ the human birch trees stay for the symbolical metamorphosis of a mind influenced by the new natural landscape. is finland the metamorphosis place?
✻ the transparent envelopes contain different pieces of nature which I have been collecting during my first months here. there are dried leaves, berries, melted snow and other symbolical memories of the nature surrounding me. what will I collect next?
