The Finnish artist Pilvi Takala presents Close Watch, a new video installation that examines work cultures, communities and the presence of security in our everyday lives. For a period of six months, Takala worked as a security guard in a shopping mall in Finland. This multi-channel installation is based on her experiences and conversations, as well as those of the other security guards working in the mall. The work questions the complex roles security plays in society, providing protection, and at the same time maintaining control.
