Elävä maalaus (eng. Living painting) on the one hand, reproduces the process of creating a painting, on the other hand, it tries to resolve the objectifying gaze on the female body. In this choreographic performance the creators of the painting, the female bodies, are also parts of the painting. They produce pictures, move them and disassemble them.
