White Spot

Tellervo Kalleinen

Tellervo Kalleinen turned a gallery into a video studio and placed advertisements in newspapers stating that anyone could come and direct a film scene here, provided that it can take place in an empty white space and that it includes a role for the artist. The project was realised with 26 participants in Helsinki and Riga.
