Our journey on this planet is relatively a short one. Our consumption habits do leave a sad print of the path that is hopelessly visible in piles of waste found on scrap yards. For me those piles aren´t merely an incarnation of reckless consumption – they are traces of our life stories. 
The abandoned objects have been used by people of all ages, races and social classes. The waste carries their fingerprints, hair and fragrances. Their sorrow and joy.
When we see the past we also see the future. One family´s travel memories in the form of an abandoned car will be raw material for new rides. The story continues, grows and multiplies. It doesn´t end in the scrap yard. This is merely a turning point for the plot.
- Pasi Orrensalo

Pasi Orrensalo (1969) lives and works in Finland. His series Life Behind The Waste is launched in Oslo and will be exhibited in Cologne, Milan, London and Amsterdam.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
