Move any Mountain
VIDEO INSTALLATION, 2011
Move Any Mountain is a multi-screen video installation. Three videos are projected on the walls, while the floor of the space is laden with rocks and gravel. Opposite each other stand two enormous heads, seemingly made of gray stone, vomitting gravel and dust in turns. This cycle continues infinitely while on the third screen, in the center, we can see two stone-like hands coming down from the clouds, one after another, digging the earth.
What are these beings? Some ancient gods or the corporate titans of today? While striving for omnipotency in their all-consuming showdown, they don’t seem to feel too well after all.
Move Any Mountain was exhibited in April 2010 as part of my thesis exhibition Portraits of Conquered Ground in the Academy of Fine Arts Gallery, Helsinki.
