Vasternorrland museum, Harnosand, Sweden (June-August 2000), exhibition"Segment"  (curator Cecilia Dahlback).
 
 
Installation objects, color photos, interactive co-operation with viewers. 

The exposition took place in the building, named the Russian House which was really used by Russian troops in the Russian-Swedish war (1700-1721). The name Rysskraecken goes to that times and means "the fear of Russians". Nowadays this word is used only to frighten children. To cover a phonetic aspect of the phenomena there was an audio recorder in a lobby room so that every visitor could pronounce the word Rysskraecken and then hear it again.
