Item Description

Catalogue from the exhibition held at Ricardo Fernandes Gallery, Paris, France, 2012. Curator and scenography Ricardo Fernandes, critic Miia Siven.

“How did those who were preparing for war and fighting on the battlefield feel? What did the family members at the home front think? The letters convey many kinds of thoughts. They are not full of stories of a war the details of which my uncles were forbidden from mentioning in their letters. Instead, they contain dreams, depictions of daily life, concrete requests to family members, wishes and greetings as well as words of caring and soothing.” (extract from the text by Kati Riikonen and Miia Siven)
