The Finnish are often described as ‘forest people’. The forest is dark, mystical and unknown. A great cliché of horror cinema. Despite this, I began by filming the forest. Searching for scenes where ancient Finnish gods or signs of them can be found. Places where you can feel that time has stopped. In my works I combine photographs, myths and memories with clay. The clay gives a comic relief when things get too frightening and weighty. (Malakias)
