Couch, TV and VCR

2012,

video installation (approx. 4 min)

Sohva, televisio ja videot (Couch, Television and VCR) is a video installation about a conflict. Through a fictitious narrative, it depicts an identity crisis of a child and the shaking of her whole value system, and the child’s reactions to this. The installation ties together different layers of her memory. It is a narrative about how the family can be, besides a mainstay, also a distressing, hostile and unfamiliar environment.
