Where I became a mother 



Let them know that you are here



Sielulintu (Soul bird) 

My work consists of three parts; an installation, a book and a performance. All three parts emerge from a collection of poems that were written during my first year as a mother.  Through written words, singing and various imagery I search for ways to narrate and share my experience of motherhood and the numerous emotions that came with it.
