Collage, 74 x 35 cm, 2012

About the work

This work was part of my solo exhibition Eheä Maailma aka Cohesive World exhibited together with the collage works Unser Österreich, Under the Alps, Postcard from nowhere and Aavan meren tuolla puolen. The material in these works is found from second hand stores and flea markets: they are landscape postcards, travel catalogue pictures and family album photos from a holiday trip. When I began creating these collages I was intrigued by the nature of such imagery and its linkage to our understanding of nations and nationality, of the national monuments, landscapes, costumes, institutions etc.
