BALTIC Edition : Salla Tykka / Limited Edition Print



Pistol Heroes 2013 is a limited edition Lambda print by artist Salla Tykka produced as part of the BALTIC Editions series.

Edition of 50 signed and numbered by the artist.

The image was taken in 1999 at Tykkä’s family house, a time when she was  interested in the memories of dreams she had in her youth. Tykkä said, “In those dreams I wanted to be one of the pistol heroes of the western films I was seeing on TV. As there weren't any female characters in those films I could relate to, I had to invent my own dream world where the female pistol hero would be true.”
