Pilvi Takala - Close Watch
|Author||Christina Li ed.|
|Publisher||Serralves/ Mousse Publishing|
This publication is part of Close Watch, Pilvi Takala's new commission for the Pavilion of Finland at the 59th Venice Biennale, 23 April – 27 November 2022. The multi-channel installation is based on the artist's experience in the private security industry, where she worked as a fully qualified security guard in one of Finland's largest shopping malls. During her six-month employment period, Takala was interested in navigating the difficulties and ethical dilemmas she would encounter on the job. Featuring notes, interviews and other materials, the publication encapsulates the extensive preparation and field research that informed the work's development to further open up the complexities around private security as both a concept and an industry.
