Timo Jokela

Riverside roots

A work of site specific art, composed of a rake, a boat and a small building tells the story of the artist’s own family. Jokela’s grandfather moved to Ii with his daughter in the 1930s, with an axe as his only property. The grandfather who worked as a carpenter and a boat-maker came to Ii to build houses, some of which are still standing. The family’s daughter recalled on her turn in her old days how it was the best time of a summer to be in haymaking in the meadows of Hiastinlahti.
