Takala mainly works with video installations; her work can be described as interventions in everyday life. The exhibition Slight Change includes works where Takala explores social behaviors with humor and comic arbitrariness. By knowingly misinterpreting rules and social codes Takala’s work creates confusion, her careful agenda challenges the social conventions that are so easily taken for granted.

As the exhibition’s title reveals, Slight Chance will include works on the theme of chance. Takala often returns to the possibilities of winning, for instance in lotteries or in the game of poker, the exploration of our perceptions of chance is part of her artistic practice.
