KARHUN SANOMAT: THE PICTURE BOOK FOR ALL
A WINDOW EXHIBITION BY WOOGURU KW
Here is the story of a bear journalist writing about his life deep in the forest. He enjoys being a bear so much and lives his life to its fullest. He runs and roams free; he swims in the huge lake alone, riding waves, exploring every corner of it; he eats so well because he knows what only bears know; he talks and listens to his friends; he feels all of it and dances to it. Above all, he has nothing but a big bear love. And now, he’s on the way to Helsinki all the way from his den by Lake Saimaa. Why? To spread his love. Don’t miss it. And remember that November is coming. Things may go better with it. And you deserve it.
Wooguru Kw is a wild man happily living in Lappeenranta, with his love of life, who brought him to all of it. Karhun Sanomat is pretty much about his own life there – swimming free and wild, jumping off the rocks, skiing across the lake, etc. All things are the dance to him. Fantastic and awesome. But deep down, it’s also about how he feels about himself in Finland as a foreigner – particularly, when it comes to the Finnish language. But he remains optimistic. He keeps trying it, making mistakes, learning from them, and navigating the cultural landscape of Finland on his own.
