My exhibition is a collection of interpretations of moments when perception without thinking can cause a vague feeling. The surprise of an abnormal situation can paralyze you before understanding the actual event. As if a safe situation suddenly became threatening or appeared different from reality. Perception is the basis for connecting to reality, but only comparing with memory, questioning memory and perception and conscious thinking form a reliable experience. In my opinion, it is in many ways the characteristic that defines the experience of this exhibition. The starting point of the exhibition is my idea of ​​the coincidences of existence and events and how they meet one’s own understanding and thereby form a perspective.

The exhibition has been supported by Taike/National Council for the Visual Arts, Finnish Cultural Foundation/Häme regional fund and Alfred Kordelin Foundation.
