“In ‘Invisible places: The Hideout’ the hidden place works as the inspirational framework. An old wooden boat has been turned upside down – seemingly abandoned, yet silently inhabiting the shoreline of Kivinokka. The installation reveals a mysterious glow and intriguing flickering layers guiding our gaze towards a place we don’t normally reach, inviting the audience to observe our environment as a constantly unfolding treasure map where a multitude of narratives can be discovered and invisible places can be found.”
