Res publica (2008)

video documentation of sculptural project
duration 7 min 34 s

Video is a documentation of a sculpting project that was done in public space. The film shows how I made moulds of the name signs of the Finnish ministries and what kind of reactions I got during the project. The film studies the power structures in the community and the relation between an individual, especially an artist, and society.

Video documentation Res publica was first displayed in the group exhibition Public Stash (2009) in Virka Gallery in Helsinki, Finland. It was also displayed in Taidehalli, Helsinki, Finland (2009/2010), in Lönnström Art Museum, Rauma, Finland (2009/2010), in Aarhus Art Building, Denmark (2010) and in Eurocultured Street Festival in Gallery Titanik, Turku, Finland (2011).
