Helsinki and UK-based artist Maija Timonen invites us to listen in on her private thoughts, dreams and conversations in this thoughtful and self-analytic look at a woman’s creative and heterosexual crises against the anxieties of our time. Difficult social and economic pressures are meticulously and obsessively decrypted and re-encrypted by Timonen’s unnamed female protagonist, who subjects everyday occurrences and encounters to scrutiny and interpretation, often with recourse to psychoanalytic theory. Short stories are interspersed with a letter, a list of forgotten browser tabs, a treatment for an unmade film and a variety of dating scenarios. Timonen’s work, spanning filmmaking, writing and performance, has in recent years focused on the troubled interrelation between mind and body and the consequences of the changing economic landscape on women’s lives. This publication is part of G.S.O.H., a series of artists’ publications edited by Clunie Reid for Book Works.
