NATIONAL TROPHY
2007

Triptych, Digital Print
3x 29x42cm

The Black Sausage - Mustamakkara is originally made in Tampere, Finland. It can be eaten everyday of the year, hot from the grill or cold, accompanied by lingonberryjam.

An act of cultural imperialism was made by importing the national food of Finland, The Black Sausage to an exhibition in a gallery in Geneva.
The exhibition questioned the effect of globalisation to national identities and producing Finnishness in contemporary art scene.
