A Sort of Garden

Marko Lampisuo

A realistic and personal account of a man's first year as a father. Wonderful things happen but the love and interaction falter. The narrator is glued to his window with a view of his neighbour's abandoned, over-grown lot – a sort of a garden.

Marko Lampisuo (b. 1970 in Turku) draws his imagery from nature or familiar surroundings. The initial, documentary shot is usually only an initial impulse for work that will have its definitive form after several artisanal stages. Often the working is limited by the patterns set by the artist. Their repetitiveness reveals the beauty hidden in the structures and the material. Stretching the media-specific attributes influences on how the works communicate the temporal experience.
