IN THE WORKS
In 2019, Eeva-Leena “Eevis” Keskinen (30), Meiju Koskela (29), and Mira Ahola (27) participated in scandalous reality TV shows. The protagonists, who shook the public by breaking social norms, try to survive in a world with hard values and cover up their suffering so that their vulnerability would no longer be revealed.
The same place where the main characters were broken and torn naked offers experiences of wholeness and an arena to seek justice. For all three, being the object of the gaze is a condition, invisibility means loss. However, in the pram of the public apparatus, it is unclear whether the winners are really winners and what survival means in practice?
