Eija-Liisa Ahtila in K21

I note that K21, the contemporary-art museum in Duesseldorf, is currently hosting an retrospective from Eija-Liisa Ahtila (g) a Finnish video artist.  I saw her 2002 work "The House" a few years ago, which documents a schizophrenic woman’s perception of space and time in a series of surrealistic, dream-like vignettes.  Oddly moving, and like nothing I’d ever seen before.  Plus, you get to hear Finnish being spoken.  Finnish is a spine-tingling language.  I plan to drop by soon, and will post a review.
