PEEP BOX

 

2017

Last exhibited in Galleria Rajatila, Tampere, June 2017

 

This sculpture is a cardboard box with two holes in it. The holes are for eyes, and they invite the viewer to engage with the content. There’s something inside the rugged box. 

As the viewer leans in and looks through the peep holes, they see a video of a young woman crying helplessly. This wasn’t visible before. The work is always installed a little bit lower than a comfortable viewing position would be, so that the viewer consciously has to make the decision to intrude. Then they are intimately faced with what’s inside, knowing they made the decision to look.
