BODY MEMORY | KEHA MÄLU
YEAR | 2011
The stop-motion animation, “Body Memory”, takes as its central concept the idea that our body remembers, not only individual experiences, but the sorrow and pain of our predecessors. A powerful visualization of subconscious processes and the hidden horror of deportation. Inspired by historical events: the Soviet deportations from Estonia in the 1940s.

TICK TOCK | TIK TAK

EMPTY SPACE | TÜHI RUUM
YEAR | 2016
In 1944, Leonhard Lina (1914–1994), a former officer of Estonian Defence Forces, went into hiding to avoid capture and imprisonment. Trapped in a small hollow in the double ceiling of a potato storage and longing for home, he built a miniature replica of it. He crafted 217 tiny pieces of furniture and household items. The doll furniture was meant as a present for his daughter, Merike. After ten years of being underground, Leonhard received a message that he was not being accused of anything. Merike was 10 years old when she finally got her present.
