TERRARIUM by Vilma Leino


By (author): Vilma Leino


Subtitle: Space for understanding identity


Through seeking emotions in hiding and building a soft, soothing surrounding, Vilma Leino photographs herself as characters who live in her neurotic daydreams. Small, domestic rooms as a source of inspiration, uneven proportions, in a world built out of neon and pastel colors, she balances between chaos and clarity, scenarios of horror and comedy. Being alone as a way to find oneself, a playful approach toward one's own body, and learning to care for it. An experience of growing up, keeping alive the child within. By telling stories that began in regular spaces, with objects seen as boring and day-to-day, she modifies the reality we know, to describe a place that is overwhelming, delightfully eerie, a comforting nightmare.
