“The surroundings of Kivinokka offer a few basic characteristics and qualities that has inspired me and to me are fundamental to hold on to in today’s society: silence, slowness, homeliness and a feeling of time standing still. In ‘Timegaze’ these qualities all come together in a temporary space, built on top of the foundation of one of Kivinokka’s old huts. The space becomes somewhat ritualistic in its appearance, with the light installation as a centerpiece – a symbolic object that you are invited to gaze at, to contemplate, for as long as you want.”
