patching up

Drop to Fetch installation and performance as documentary address the African side of immigration, both

regarding rural to the urban movement as well as the struggle to cross international borders within Africa,

and all the way on to the doors of Europe.

I aim to speak about loss, hope, the pain of starting from scratch, and the struggle for recognition.

Each element in my installations has a meaning: signs of the journey that never ends once one sets off;

expectations and promises that prove to be false. I speak about these universal experiences in image

metaphors and in the language of those who never reach their destination.

Even tho it was my second time to perform drop to fetch, the gallery space set up and the time with the

installation, the audio/ voiceover and performance created a new atmosphere. and also performing drop to

watch with new participants from Turku give me a new unique experience.
