In relation to the urban environment.

Art from everyday life.
Observations on the temporality of artistic research.

Riikka Kevo:

People are often very connected to the apartment and the area they feel as their home, and I look at this and the threatening future sea level rise in the future and, in many ways, a person at risk of injury.
