The leading elements in the landscape that opens up in Deluge are the sky, water, and a stone. From a far on the horizon, a swimming figure appears and proceeds purposefully towards the rock to find a moment of refuge. But the weight of the stone is not enough to support the man. He sinks with the stone and a moment later, the stone comes back to the surface without the man. We humans are bigger than our size and we pressure the environment and the creatures around us. The size and the shape of Deluge resemble an altarpiece installed on a five-meter high wall. The proportions become so large that they inundate the viewer. The visual starting points for Juhana Moisander’s work have been the 19th-century illustrations of the Bible by Gustave Doré and The Deluge, Michelangelo’s fresco in the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
