A Russian Installation In Helsinki Metro

A Russian fairy tale wooden house is exhibited as part of the installation on Helsinki Metro.

      The station Kamppi is a regular exhibition space for contemporary artists and one of the major attractions in Finland's capital. This year the artist Jouko Korkeasaari has used the creative space to produce a vivid representation of a traditional Russian wooden house. One of the cherished articles of the Russian folklore, "izbushka na kur'ikh nozhkah" (a hut-on-hens-bones) is usually inhabited by Baba Yaga (the witch) and generally serves as a symbol of a gateway to the outer world. However, it is also known for its ability to turn around and even dance, hence the inspiration for the artist.
