In addition to the Confessional, there are two other objects made of solid wood at this exhibition. One of them is an oak rose, a symbol loaded with different meanings. Through Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures it has come to denote the confidentiality of confession in the Christian world. In the exhibition In Vanity Alone, the rose is indeed placed in the immediate vicinity of the confessional, yet the burnt flower on the wall looks equally strange. “Like a wound,” Neeme Külm comments.
