Anna Kolehmainen: Sarjasta Sisäisiä taisteluita-tuhovoima vs suojaava eheys
The work is part of a whole that was completed for the Ars-Häme summer
exhibition We were not alone. The theme of the Finnish Civil War made
me reflect on the nature of hatred and violence and its counterparts. Each
of us can, under the right circumstances, succumb to hatred, violence, and
the misuse of power. Each of us also has the capacity for compassion,
nonviolence, and responsible power. It is a question of choices.
The images that emerge from this dynamic between two opposing attitudes
remind me of the importance of even small choices.
