PANTAGRUEL'S MOUTH (2010), 3-channel video installation

duration 4:40
montage: Miia Rinne
sound: Pentti Dassum

Pantagruel´s Mouth consists of three video projections side by side, each showing the passing of a journey. Material comes from a variety of feature movies. Using short citations, I have built a new journey within the vast universe of original stories.

Pantagruel's Mouth relates to the human need to tell stories and fantasize. The title comes's from Renaissance writer F. Rabelais. In one of his story, the narrator-character gets lost in the mouth of the giant Pantagruel, and finds there a new world.
