The main exhibit of Paavo Räbinä's 1993 exhibition at the Tampere Art Museum was a collage depicting the uprising in Tampere during the Finnish Civil War. The piece comprised large photographs of young men fighting in the ranks of the Reds and the Whites and of the battles in Tampere as well as a wall-to-wall knife installation. Räbinä, nominated young artist of the year, successfully captured the essence of historical events and collective emotions in his works.
