He collects artefacts around him – strange objects which still pulsate with life. They speak to the one who knows how to listen as he unapologetically moulds the environment around him to make it his own.
Jyrki Riekki’s expression is an atonement to appease the ghosts of the past, poetry and spells that praise their existence; exorcisms of what slumbers in the abyss amongst the demons, grim reapers, devils and creatures that have been savaged by love and continue to embrace the crust of the earth.
True vision is to give in to the abundance of details and throw one's self into the infinite possibilities of imagination. It is to dare to look into the darkness and to live in the moment. To find freedom in the blink of an eye.
