Text for exhibition catalogue: Aurora 3, Helsinki, 1989
One night during reconnaissance, two patrols met while sheltering in an abandoned house. At first both mistakenly assumed that the other had been sent out by another section of their own forces. When this was found not to be the case, they nevertheless decided for practical reasons to cooperate during the night. It had turned out that the information the beleaguered were in need of to break the siege was the same that the besiegers were waiting for in order to launch their final assault. By jointly organising the reconnaissance, it was hoped that it would be possible to gather the required information more efficiently, and thereby save valuable time.
