In Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s films and videos, ordinary suffering inhabits the bodies of her female subjects and takes over, spilling into such neurotic activities as crawling on a freeway overpass, lying face up in a puddle of mud, acting like a dog or blocking up all the windows and doors of a house so as to keep out distractions.
