Without a View
Gallery Kajava, 2009


Solo exhibition in Gallery Kajava, Helsinki, in the end of the year 2009

“To experience landscape with watching, seeing, feeling and photographing, is to me as necessary as breathing. A landscape means a never ending space to dream, to be a human being, It gives a possibility to feel your smallness. A landscape is much more than a scenary or a stage.

Without a View is about non-scape. It does not amaze you, or make you feel exaltation. Non-scape is like a space where you barely can move, think or breathe. I build artificial urban scenaries to widen my breathing space. When I sit in my green arm chair, I see odd revelations. In the end they will become my friends.
Will I wake up now?”
