Poster installation for public place, 2008-
Piece lifts conversations about family and its meanings to public urban space. Family is supposed to be one of the lasts societal institutions that bounds individual to society’s socialization process. Family and its meaning’s are object of strong power struggle.
Work is proclaiming family matter in urban space and studies what kind of space develops when conversations about family are transferred to common public space. I am interested what kind of experiences is developing between family talk, urban space and users of those.
Starting point for piece is heading quotes from Mannerheim League for Child Welfare’s, Finish Evangelical Lutheran Church Family Counseling Center’s and Seta’s family and couples counseling material. The headings are spreading to public place in piece.
