Eeva-Mari's Cries etc.  

Eeva-Mari Haikala

In the video, the artist listens to a c-cassette found from her late parents’ belongings. Her mother has recorded various situations of her first year on tape. The video work was shot in a single shot, and she hears the tape in front of the camera for the first time without knowing its contents in advance.
