Echo by Perttu Saksa
"Echo" is a serie of fragile images of taxidermic primates, captured into European museum archives from colonial Africa and Latin America. The ways of seeing and reading these posing animals have many layers – historically, scientifically, culturally, linguistically and esthetically. "Echo" questions how our histories are written and represented through photography and natural science. These different ways and possibilities of investigating the pictures make them more alive and interesting, not only to be tied to one specific interpretation of nature, rather about human condition, ways of writing history and relating on ourselves.
A Kind Of You by Perttu Saksa
"A Kind of You" is a documentary work of an uncanny asian tradition, where monkeys are trained and dressed to act humanlike in order to ask money from the bypassers. Modern city culture has turned the old tradition in to eerie and haunting act of cruel street theatre where animals become something else, never able to reach our expectations.
