Introduction to the Personal exhibition Petrified:

Petrified centers around the sense of detachment from the world and oneself, using familiar architectural forms from the city streets to create a backdrop of a cityscape at nightfall, where the common feelings of this time and age such as anxiety and fear of the unknown are revealed in a new light.

The stillness of the night is a good time for gathering your thoughts, but it is also the time when illuminated screens and artificial lights compete most brutally for our attention.

The video and photo installations of the exhibition are marked by continuous but aimless movement, where the characters in the videos or the motion mechanisms of the works themselves have succumbed to the endless loop.

The inability to change direction or to actively intervene in one's surroundings brings attention to irrelevant details, where it falls into the folds of perception, like the blind but ever seeing eye.


Exhibition was curated by Eva Mustonen
