Nutt ja hala / Weeping and moaning, 2009, video installation on 3 screens,12min, Tallinn, Vilnius
“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.

My mother left Estonia 1999 and moved to USA looking for better living conditions and
