Stilleben - Milena’s Journey

Marikki Hakola

This video work is based on letters written by Franz Kafka to his beloved Milena. The central themes of the piece are distance, longing and memories. The layered imagery relies on the collective memories of the viewer. The starting point for this is master composer Kaija Saariaho's radiophonic work Stilleben.
