A work of art is a world from which one particular phenomenon has been chosen for scrutiny. A form has been painstakingly created to express that phenomenon. The work of art is a hermetic world that, while it is being made, begins to influence its creator, to suggest ways for how to move forward. Could hands-on creation bring about a more subjective and layered understanding of the weaving networks of roads or the act of floating in the sea?

Opening of the exhibition in MUU Cable is on Thursday 12 April 2018 at 5-7 pm! Welcome!

image: Sara Pathirane, My Chinese Landscape

 

Sara Pathirane’s exhibition My Chinese Landscape takes the viewer on a trip from the Chinese Huangshan mountains enveloped in fog to a copse of wood behind the Shaolin Monastery where child monks are doing their morning exercises. Travelling in a soft sleeper car on a bullet train, Pathirane travelled from one famous mountain to the next to shoot on video the present-day reality of settings familiar from classic Chinese ink wash paintings. In the exhibited works, painting and video merge in handmade porcelain reliefs. On the gallery wall, the same bamboos sway as in the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The audience is treated to views as captured with selfie sticks by Chinese tourists in their own country, in scenic destinations where travellers take thousands of pictures every day. China is once again drawing people.

Opening on Thursday 12 April 5pm – 7pm Welcome!

The show features the premieres of two video works: Yassine Khaled’s Monitor Man (vol. 2) and Elina Oikari’s Hotel President. The two works build up into a dialogical whole. Monitor Man is compiled from footage of performances given by Khaled in 2016 and 2017 in Helsinki, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, Venice and Copenhagen. Hotel President is an exploration of the mindscape and lived reality of asylum seekers in Berlin.

TUOMO KANGASMAA – Hidden Details

Photographs and captions

2.3.-8.4.2018
MUU Cable, Cable Factory
Tallberginkatu 1 C, 00180 Helsinki
Open: Mon-Fri 10-19, Sat-Sun 12-16


Tuomo Kangasmaa, Stage

 

Hidden Details is an installation that combines photographs with texts. Its theme is the environment in a very broad sense of the word. On the experiential level, the environment is personal, yet in the collective context it becomes political. The environment with all its various meanings is the subject of an increasingly heated political debate today. Personal experiences of the environment threaten to disappear in a maelstrom of plans, arguments, trends and ideologies. The starting point of the photographs in the show is personal experience of the immediate environment, and the possibility of seeing the ordinary and the familiar in a new way, as something strange

Opening of the exhibition in MUU Cable is 1.3.2018 at 5-7pm! Welcome!
