Tuulensytyttäjä (2018)

Two-channel video installation (wood, window, sound)

There is something ominous about the wind. It is much more powerful and uncontrollable than us.

In Tuulensytyttäjä the wind is both an external threat disrupting the peace of the home, and a symbol for an inner chaos.

The work is inspired by the mystical romanticism of horror movies from the 1960's and 1970's and by the immortal phase of the Big Bad Wolf: "Let me in or I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in!"
