In her recent video installation The Stroker (2018) filmed at Second Home, a co-working space in London, Takala moves through the building and greets the members of Second Home gently touching them on the arm or shoulder. These gestures of care and attention subvert established rules of office conduct, provoking some strong reactions such as visible discomfort, nervousness and tension that are reenacted through facial expressions, bodily movements, silence or awkward verbal exchanges.
Takala mixes in her work the reality of documented actions with staged portraiture. Her works clearly show that it is often possible to learn of the implicit rules of a social situation only by its disruption. In her video works based on performative interventions, Takala researches specific communities to explore social structures and questions the normative rules of behavior in different contexts. Her works explore conduct enforced but not necessarily written down or discussed – social unspoken rules that are exposed only when someone like Takala runs counter them.
