The sculpture Light and Shadow - A Hommage to the poet Saima Harmaja, the composer Kaj Chydenius and the singer Taru Nyman

The CD “ Virta Venhettä Vie” (“ The Stream Carries The Boat” ), 2009, of songs composed by Kaj Chydenius includes the song “On Maa”  (“ There´s  A Land” ) made  to a poem of Saima Harmaja. It is performed by Taru Nyman.

It´s  a very touching piece!  I kept on listening to it in my studio – constantly pressing the repeat-button. I had to start from the beginning to get to the culmination at the end, and then again return to the beginning to once more experience the end... and after that return to the beginning to once more. I gave myself up completely to it and made the sculpture Light and Shadow ( 2010).
