Pilvi Takala videos, artist books and installations are always based on interventions in specific social settings. The unwritten rules of a certain situation might seem quite clear at first sight, but there's always grey areas that are left in between the rules and have potential for something new to emerge. In her work Takala is stepping into these grey areas, which are embarrassing and unpleasant by nature, but too exciting to be left untouched.
