AboutElsa SALONEN (Fl) and Keiko KIMOTO (Jap)
Based on an old Finno-Ugric belief, migrating birds fly as soul birds to Lintukoto, Vainajala (Kingdom Come) for winter.
Absence from the familiar standpoints and cultural environment that forms one's identity, forces constantly to define the perception of yourself.
Even though today we know the migrating birds fly somewhat closer than Lintukoto.
The journey of the birds as an eternal migration towards one's self is the common starting point of reflection represent by the artworks in this exhibition.
