In collaboration with Street Art Vantaa, I was there but you didn’t see me* participated in the public art project Mainostauko during the Finnish election season. This billboard shows the back of a scanned photo from the @valokuvamuseo archive. The written text roughly translated to: “confirmation school children in muolaa before the winter war.” As the staff explained to us, Muolaa was a city lost to Russia during the war. 

We would like to pay special thanks to Sofia Lahti and the archive team at Valokuvataiteen Museo for their knowledge and expertise.
