The exhibition features ink and watercolor paintings as well as a video piece. The video – influenced, for example, by the Japanese art of butoh dance – includes a Beat poem by Mark Olson with sound designed and created by Juha Mäki-Patola. The forest in the artist’s vision is both a physical place and a state. The works deal with humans as part of nature, the nature in humans and the fear of nature.
