The Ruins of Weserumschlagstelle

The Ruins of Weserumschlagstelle, installation on the banks of the River Weser 2000

Exhibition 3 Räume – 3 Flüsse, Hann.Münden, Germany

Two circles of light rotate slowly amid the ruins and on the river bank, blankly showing one place at a time. Hann.Münden is a charming little German town, with the abandoned ruins of the Weserumschlagstelle close to its centre. The lights move amid the ruins as the town sleeps.

Solo exhibition, Focus-Studio-Transit, Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, Turku 

The artist’s entire studio transported and reconstructed in the museum for the exhibition period. A beam of light moves around the dimly lit space, illuminating one object at a time.

The Sky of Tampere, 2000

Poetry Summer in Watou, Belgium

The A3-size watercolour paintings on the floor of a farm outhouse form an image of the stars in the sky. The sunlight filtering through the slightly broken roof forms round patches, which move over the paintings, like the planets in the sky.
