The performance „Human Forestry“ by 10 x 10 meters is dedicated to Estonian immigrants working in Finland, but also to all other East European workers in the West. The performance takes place in Helsinki, Kiasma and includes the following: Estonian national resources – timber and human labor – are transported over the Gulf of Finland on the expenses of Estonian taxpayers. The timber – a huge pile of logs – will be located to a gallery space in Kiasma, by using physical work of four people. Kiasma as the hosting institution for this event is free to interpret, use or archive the embodiment of Estonian labor. Current statement is addressed to Finnish and Estonian societies. Whoever agrees with us and wants to contribute, is welcome to help us roll the logs in Kiasma 2 PM – 5 PM, 7-th of October 2012.
