In my work, children's fantasy games reflect adult relationships with money. The inappropriate, childish, deeply innocent, sincere approach seems to me the best way to talk about money in a situation where a large part of the world pays loans with new loans.

“Weeping and Moaning” looks at a crisis situation and its dynamics in the life of an individual, a community and a society. My work is based on an attempt to solve a crisis situation that is created and emphasised by media with lamenting (itk). Lameting is a certain “crying-song” that is found in the Setu culture in Southern-Estonia and that is mainly connected to death, but also to significant changes in a person’s life, such as marriage or leaving for war. Lamenting is a therapy with its own rituals and to lament has been a natural behaviour in a crisis situation throughout history.
