Kasken Kierto, photography landscape installation by Sanna Saastamoinen-Barrois, curated by Marjatta Levanto, presents the slash-and-burn process and its impact on nature. In the installation, which communicates with the nature of the precious garden of Lapinlahti area, Saastamoinen-Barrois studies the cycles of nature as well as her own roots. Shot in 2012 at Telkkämäki Nature Reserve in Kaavi,
the 14 large images have been hung on cable wires at Fahlanderin Puistokuja at Lapinlahti park. The installation communicates both with the nature and with the varying weather conditions, offering visitors a unique experience.
Before shooting the installation, the artist had just
returned to Finland after spending 17 years in Paris. Her time abroad prompted her to reflect upon her own roots and homeland, which initiated her interest in photographing the cycles of Finnish nature.
Kasken Kierto photography landscape installation was first presented in Vallisaari in 2017
as part of the official program of Suomi 100, to celebrate 100 years anniversary of Finland.
