Photographer Päivi Anita Ristell’s exhibition ’Four Boxes of Her’ is a touching and personal story of the loss of her sister, Jenni. Dealing with sorrow and longing, the exhibition consists of several different parts: texts&images printed on rice paper, portraits, childhood photographs, sound installation...and as the name suggests; installation of the four boxes that Jenni’s things are packed into. Memories, longing and these four boxes – that is what remains of her little sister.
