Öhrnberg: House in Woods, Flash dia-show.
Are your dreaming about your own
"The red cottage
and potatofield" is a metaphor of the wish for the liberty of
Finns. It is a myth which lives especially in mind of the
first generation's city dwellers.
Öhrnberg is not only a daydreamer. "From These Plocks (after
the Civil War, 1918)", is a key work of this exhibition
collection. We finnish have also our Civil War in our
history, but we are very speechless cultur. After our Civil
war 1918 and other wars, we have had to rebuild homes for many
families. But just during last years, we have started to
discuss about it.

Katja wrotes; "I see
suuroundings and enviroment as an essential part of piece of art. As
such, the forest is a very challenging space, because of its
multitude, beauty, and constant transformation of its
presence. I'm intrested in
people, especially in human mind. When I look at the world I see
mainly how mankind has shaped it. I wonder about our motives and
admire the many ways of our interactivity." Katja Öhrnberg
