Pilvi Takala - The real Snow White

"Pilvi Takala (*1981 in Helsinki) deals with the constitutions and limits of social groups and communities. Her videos, books, and installations are based on interventions in (semi-)public spaces, and this first monograph documents most of her work since 2005."

She has most brilliant ideas in her videos. Like in Wallflower waiting in a Finnish dancing hall if someone would come to pick her up, for the whole evening. As a trainee in a company doing thinking work without the computer or driving the whole day in an elevator. Or going with two other women into a Turkish tearoom. Or building castles of 1 and 2 euro coins. What happens when Snow White tries to enter to Disney world?

Watch the videos for more info. They are awesome. Check the webpage for all of them.
