A beautiful object presented in a box sealed by a paper strip, specially made for the Nordic Pavillion exhibition at the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001 that strangely went forgotten since. Along with the special 10" vinyl compilation including found sounds and works by CM von Hauswolff, Leif Elggren, Petteri Misunen, Tommi Gronlund and Mika Vainio you will get a stunning 110 pages book full of carefully selected and/or found photographs, mostly atmospheric or suddenly poetic when considered as a double image. IMHO This is more of a luxurious art book rather than a souvenir compilation.

One could consider this as a silent catalogue that shows more than words can express: visual tales of urban details, moving landscapes, unexpected meetings...
