Lohdutusten arkisto (An Archive of Consolation) (2017)

About this exposition

This exposition consists of my video piece Voices of Consolation (2014) and my essay "Lohdutusten arkisto" ("An Archive of Consolation"). The video shows interior paintings by the Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864–1916). On the soundtrack a group of people are trying to console the black-clad woman seen in the paintings. In the essay I describe the process of making the piece. The essay's structure reflects the video: the text is like an apartment with several rooms.

Tämä ekspositio sisältää videoteoksen Voices of Consolation (2014) ja esseen "Lohdutusten arkisto". Video koostuu tanskalaisen Vilhelm Hammershøin (1864–1916) sisäkuvista. Ääniraidalla joukko ihmisiä yrittää lohduttaa maalauksissa näkyvää mustapukuista naista. Essee kertoo teoksen tekoprosessista. Tekstin rakenne on lainattu videosta: se on kuin talo, jossa on erilaisia huoneita.
