Three Legs

By playing with scale, Three Legs examines people’s encounters with their environment as historical, pictorial and material experiences. The travelogue within the work transports the visitor from Viipuri (Vyborg) Library during the War to a photo-shoot for a science-fiction novel. Eventually, through a series of mock-up structures, the visitor ends up in the ruined hotels destroyed by the Thailand tsunami and the microcosmos of the insect world. The narrative is no longer purely linear but also on-screen, at one and the same time.
