The original idea is not mine – or it’s not even a new idea – but the issue was (again) discussed at local level in the Finnish blog.
Finland has – unfortunately – highest suicide statistics in the worlds and sometimes I think the melancholy is built to us in very early age.
Of course this also reflected in art and Finnish society – which, however may be one of the best countries what take care of the weak and powerless people.
However, if a person goes to exhibition with curious mind and full of cheerful ideas but will come out and are lost in thought – I think the art was doing its job.
Because art can be very stimulating or give you self-destruction ideas, but it all ways will be mirrored how the viewer’s see the world and what kind of values he has.
