Maruyama Yoshiko

Leaf boat

Leaf boat anchored to its place at the Kauppila shore tells a passer-by to stop. The stone words arranged around it ask you in Japanese and in Finnish, if you can hear the echo of nature and the past, if you can hear the flow of the Iijoki river, the soughing of leaves, the noise coming from the playing of children who have grown at the Kauppila school and the artists in their work building the works of the Biennale.
