You Are Not A Thing, The Thing Is Not You (2015)

Concrete floor, tiles, drain lid, drawing

The work was created for Valtio+ (State+) exhibition that took place in a former Turku Regional Prison in Kakolanmäki, Turku. The piece consists of two parts, a drawing that was placed inside a segregation cell and a sculpture that was cast outside on the yard of the prison. The drawing was depicting the ground plan of the same cell where it was hanged and a larger map of the cell´s location inside the prison. The sculpture was a copy of the floor of same segregation cell that was `moved´ outside. It was cast and tiled on place and included all the detailing of the original.

The connection with the two parts would be detected while walking about in the prison and the exhibition. The sculpture could be seen on each floor from the staircase window. The work enabled to view and encounter the cell´s floor space outside without the oppressing and overwhelming prison atmosphere.

Eventually the nature would take the piece over.
