Last saturday was the opening of Between the Bridges, the annual environmental art exhibition in Jämsä in Central Finland. Me, Urška Sršen and Matti Koskinen from Finnish Academy of Fine Arts were invited to make new works for the exhibition in city center.
For six months I gathered stories and memories from Jämsä citizens of all ages. The result from these stories donated for me is the Storymap of Jämsä. The exhibition is open every day until 2.9.2012.
[Note 15.11.2012. The exhibition time has been extended - Storymap will be on show through the whole winter and spring 2013.)
