MARI MÄKIÖ – KAGEKIYODO

28.9.-3.11.2019
MUU Studio
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki
Open: Tue–Fri 12–17, Sat–Sun 12–16

image: Mari Mäkiö, Kagekiyodo

 

Kagekiyodoat MUU Studio consists of two sound installations that bring echoes of a place in the Akiyoshidai national park in Japan for the audience to hear and also touch in the gallery. The show is an experiment in transposing the spatial experience of a dark cave thousands of kilometres away into the exhibition space, how the original space can be made perceptible through the senses of hearing and touch.

Opening ceremony on Friday 27.9.2019 from 17:00–19:00. Welcome!

ALISA JAVITS – GLITTER DREAMS

28.9.-3.11.2019
MUU Gallery
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki
Open: Tue–Fri 12–5pm, Sat–Sun 12–4pm

kuva: Alisa Javits, Glitter Dreams

 

Images flowing in the work are like sporadic, recurring mental images of the mind that seemingly have nothing in common. The work is not about glitter, rather it is a metaphor. It ponders over longing, trying, daring and things which people find and choose to have in their lives. Everyone has their own “glitter dreams” and they can’t be judged.

Opening of the exhibition on Friday 27 September, 2019, from 5-7 pm. Welcome!

3.8.-8.9.2019
MUU Studio
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki, Finland
Open: Tue–Fri 12–17, Sat–Sun 12–16

kuva: Elli Vuorinen

 

In the three-channel video installation Still Lives (Kiirehessä Liikkumatoin), the concept of busy stillness is explored from various standpoints as museum artefacts from all around the world reflect on the mundane challenges of modern life. Nowadays people are constantly busy and on the move. At the same time we have never been so still. Sitting in a car or on a plane and if we are doing any physical exercises it’s often in a gym in one place.

Opening of the exhibition on Friday 2 August 2019, from 5pm–7pm. Welcome!

Opening on Friday, 2 August 2019, from 5pm–7pm. Welcome!

Timo Andersson & Joonas Hyvönen – CACHE + RELEASE

1.6.-20.6.2019
MUU Cable
Cable Factory, Tallberginkatu 1 C, Helsinki, Finland
Open: Mon–Fri 10–19, Sat–Sun 12–16

image: Timo Andersson & Joonas Hyvönen

 

“It’s a bad time of the year to be sitting in a tram with bags of stuff for the show, or to drag a big work wrapped up in a waste bag with the wind grabbing it like a kite. Well, one of us has it a bit easier when everything can just be fitted onto a USB drive or something. But of course it depends on what we end up making.

It feels a little unreal to think about the show as a clear concept. It’s more like a deconstruction of the irony poisoned digital-native lifestyle, in really the only way we can do it. Admittedly we sometimes have to compromise because one of us likes narratives while the other one would like to see his work as constituting a kind of opposite to meaning, a black hole if you like.

Of course, these days it’s possible to take a picture even of a black hole.”

LAURA LAUKKANEN – KOHTELIAS YSTÄVÄ (POLITE FRIEND)

Open: Tue – Fri 12-17, Sat – Sun 12-16

image: Laura Laukkanen

Laura Laukkanen’s video installation at MUU Gallery continues her series of exhibitions showcasing courtesy and kindness.

The installation draws heavily on the writings of two social psychologists, Erving Goffman and Norbert Elias, who often use examples relating to eating in their texts. Eating is associated with the development of behaviour and emotions. Where Goffman studied practices in mental hospitals, Elias explored 16th-century court life.

Join us for the opening of the exhibition on Friday, 31 May 2019, from 17:00–19:00. Welcome!

During the räkkä season, the reindeer form themselves into herds as then the number of insects per animal is reduced. The reindeer also move into wind-swept fell tops or to treeless mires. Animals become stressed by the almost constant onslaught of these insects and they risk losing so much blood that their life is endangered.

A city symphony is an early film genre which does not have a specific definition. Usually, the films belonging to this category have been described as experimental documentaries trying to capture the local atmosphere, whilst showcasing everyday-life in a given city. The well-known city symphonies of the 1920’s typically depict the big cities of that time, and they emphasized on a new kind of urban life and its modern tone and pulse. In these films you can see glimpses of global metropolises such as Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, or (the most popular example) New York.

MUU Writes is a group composed of MUU members artists who share an interest in writing. The group has set themselves the task of publishing an essay on every exhibition scheduled in MUU’s program autumn 2018, to be released both online and in the gallery.

MUU writes 05/12/2019

The compendium — curated by artist-filmmakers Tellervo Kalleinen and Mika Taanila — not only successfully integrates the work of seasoned practitioners and young emerging talents in an overview that is at once vital and engaging, perceptive and well paced, but it caps a year during which MUU has also focused on media artists and their art through a diverse range of events.
