30 PÄIVÄÄ JUMALANA (eng. 30 DAYS AS A GOD)- exhibition was made together with Vilma Eromäki and Laura Nevanperä. We travelled around India for a month in February 2014 and the exhibition was the result of this trip. The month-long trip felt a short time to get to know a whole different world. The change of a social status was significant: suddenly we were rich and attention-grabbing. According to Indian saying the guest is a god.

In my works I focused on my experience of being an outsider; how it felt when I was forced to face myself as a white, as a woman, a foreigner, as part of a travelling group. In the paintings I tried to catch the cheap, trashy and temporary feeling and used garbage bags as canvases.
