Only 50 years ago, Rummu Prison was a former labor camp where limestone was hewn from the ground. In 1991, when the Soviet fell, the quarry was abandoned, and the locks were opened. The quarry filled up with water, too soon to save all the materials present. It seems that the prison was abandoned abruptly from one day to the next.
I tried to create a new life that runs through the heavy foundations of the prison. An ingenious staircase system that moves very fragile through the openings. Just as I experienced, the country is on the rise. In this way, I did not want the “new life” to touch the heavy walls that symbolize dark history.
Throughout the walk, you experience the surroundings from different perspectives.
This project is very personal and emotional. After all, I was happy to pay a last tribute to Estonia.
