Anger Meets Love

Anger Meets Love

“Meet anger with Love”.

In 2021 the renowned photographer Heidi Piiroinen started a personal exploration of suppressed emotions of entrapment, violence, low self-esteem, aggressiveness, and longing for transformation. “What traits did I see in the women and men around me in my childhood that informed my beliefs? Can we rewrite what a woman is supposed to be?” While Piiroinen’s own self is the catalyst, she invites a group of women suffering from inner ill-being and violence to create new hybrid audiovisual vocabularies to express emotional wounds. The result is a series of audiovisual works for an upcoming monographic exhibition at the Rauma Art Museum – curator Heta Kaisto.
