Power

Salla Tykkä

Two persons are boxing, a topless young woman and a big man. The black and white image and the timeless space create a dreamlike atmosphere though the hard action and sounds refer to the painful reality. Power is a statement against the power relations in our society but it can be seen as a symbolic battle for life and survival.
