Tähteläinen/Star Dweller

Stardweller (2000-2001) takes us literally to the cosmic ‘other’ world. It is a record of Anne Pajuluoma’s story with neither judgment nor ironic distance, and as such, by following Anne’s struggles with loss, creates empathy towards her – whether the loss means the loss of child or the ability to distinguish between fantasy and reality.

Anne Pajuluoma, who is living in Helsinki, is longing for getting to another planet Sirius-C to live there together with her daughter who was spirited away to that distant star by aliens during Anne’s pregnancy. It is documented that she was pregnant nine years ago and was ordered to go to a hospital to have a cecarean there, but in the operation it was noticed that there was no baby. In the film My Baby Was Taken to Sirius-C Anne notes, as if to explain to viewers, that the baby was taken by the aliens who have different technology from ours, “they can walk through walls”.

This film is based on the Anne Pajuluoma´s story. She told me how she met first time the holy man Quay. Quay is living on the mountain on planet Sirius. In film you can see her trip to the Quays house. At the same time she is telling about this fantastic trip. The film is silent. It is 400 feet long and duration is about 10 minutes. This film it self  is  like the path to the Quays house.  Also the film have it´s length and the duration. In the installation version Tähteläinen/Star dweller it was set on the wall like the shape of this mountain.
