Helsinki-Turku railway: 120 years in the landscape, Turku Main Library, 1.3. – 1.4.2016

Invited exhibition-installation to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the beginning of the building works in 1896. Back then, the societal purpose of the railway was understood differently than today. The railway alignment has been changed in the course of decades, but the landscape on the way remembers the changing experience of the journey.
