Open: Tues–Fri 10–19, Sat–Sun 12–16

Kuva: Tom Lönnqvist

Is our world breaking down because we are unable to make decisions relating to the reality of the crisis unfolding around us?
Policy incertitude explores perception in the context of self-posed questions. It does not give any answers, seeking instead to raise the question of how we should position ourselves in relation to the world in which we must act.

Opening on Thursday 25.10.2018 from 5 pm to 7 pm. Opening performance by. Sara Gurevitsch. Welcome! 

Performances during the exhibition:
27.10.2018 3 pm: ‘Avoidance’
4.11.2018 1.30 pm: a performance part of Helsinki Art Walk

MUU WRITES 5

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.

This text is only in Finnish:

MUU kirjoittaa 18/09/2018
Teksti: SUVI NURMI – Linnunpönttö kutsuu pysähtymään
Timo Takala: Linnunpönttö, 14.9.-21.10.2018, MUU Studio

MUU Studiossa esillä oleva Timo Takalan videoteos on nimeltään Linnunpönttö. Nimi on sikäli harhaanjohtava, että itse linnunpönttö tulee mukaan kuvaan vasta viimeisillä minuuteilla, ja satunnainen katsoja ei välttämättä ehdi nähdä siitä vilaustakaan. Reilun tunnin mittaisella videolla näytettävä monivaiheinen työskentely tähtää kyllä loppujen lopuksi linnunpöntön nikkaroimiseen, mutta niin pitkän kaavan kautta, että lopputulos tuntuu sivuseikalta.

MUU writes 15/09/2018
Text: JOHN GAYER – Rooms of Color – an Alternate Kind of Prism
Mari Hokkanen: Room of colors, 14.9.-21.10.2018, MUU Cable

The visible spectrum can be measured, which reduces these colors to a few cold hard facts. For example, the wavelengths for violet to red only measure from 380 to 750 nanometres, which comprises a very tiny part of the whole electromagnetic spectrum. This doesn’t say anything about how we actually see, think about and feel these colors; these things can’t be measured. These processes are conditioned by multiple factors. Personal makeup and current circumstances, preconceived opinion, culture and history ensure colors are rarely interpreted in the same way.

Saga and Fairytale – an extremely random media installation / Markus Renvall, 14.9.–21.10.2018, MUU Gallery

Markus Renvall cooperates. He wants to entice people to take part in his works, because everyone can make art and everyone has a story to tell. He is critical to the factory-made, which does not allow the product to be improved by the user. He is looking for handmade solutions that can be reversed based on the needs that arise.
If a product is perfect, it is also uninteresting to Renvall.

MUU ARTISTS WILL SHOW THE WAY – WE NEED NEW KIND OF WRITING ABOUT ART!

Art writing for this day and age – art and audiences both need creative forms of discourse / about MUU writes group

Finland is a nation of art lovers, with visual art events and venues attracting some 4.5 million visitors annually. That is well beyond the figure even for theatre, traditionally regarded the most popular form of entertainment. Visual art can be enjoyed year round in all sorts of places, from established institutions to small galleries and pop-up exhibitions. New exciting venues are being set up all the time. Yet the number of discriminating texts about art is dwindling.

This deplorable lack has also been noted at Artists’ Association MUU, the second largest organisation representing professional artists in Finland. Now MUU writes 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 Gallery
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki
4pm workshop, 6pm video screening

Register for the event here.

“Finished and Last-Minute Videos” is a series of Monday night events in MUU Gallery that was launched in 2012.

The night’s theme is Poetry, a form of literature that uses the aesthetic qualities of language instead of focusing on meaning or grammatical correctness. But how can poetry be used in a moving image work? Can a video be a poem, and in what way? Bring along a video or Internet work of your own for screening and to discuss it with our commentator, poet Saila Susiluoto.

TIMO TAKALA – BIRDHOUSE

14.9.-21.10.2018
MUU Studio
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki
Open: Tues-Fri 12-17, Sat-Sun 12-16

Picture: Timo Takala

In the beginning of the project, I collected scrap iron dumped in a forest. I then carbonised the scraps into a new steel bar. I hammered it into a sawblade and sawed a log into boards. Finally, I put together a birdhouse from the boards and hang it up in the forest whence the wood originally came. The video documentation also features a German Shepherd named Luca, who helps all he can.

Opening 13.9.2018 at MUU Studio from 17-19! Welcome!

Pinture: Mari Hokkanen

What is the colour grey? What story does it tell? I make ten sketches, trying to capture the grey invisibility inside me, only to find myself alone on an empty stage. The show is stolen by meaninglessness and insignificance.

 Colour is a physical phenomenon, electromagnetic radiation. Like a random figure, a square or an ellipse, it is meaningless in itself. Colours acquire meaning only when a community or an individual ascribe meaning to them. Colours carry different meanings and connotations in different cultures and eras.

Opening on Thursday 13th of September, from 5pm – 7pm. Welcome!

PIA MÄNNIKKÖ – PHASING I

9.11.-16.12.2018

MUU Kaapeli
Kaapelitehdas, Tallberginkatu 1 C, Helsinki
Aukioajat: ma–pe 10–19, la–su 12–16

Pia_Mannikko_Vaiheinen_02
My work is often inspired by the movements and dimensions of the human body. I am fascinated by the way we observe our environment. I am curious and like to experiment with new techniques and materials. I am inspired by nature and physics and the variable scale of the phenomena, but also by historical stage sets, pre-cinema visual effects and mechanical contraptions. In my work, I often record the passage of time or the growth and change of the works themselves. A bodily connection between the viewer and my art is important for me.

Opening on Thursday 8th of November, from 5pm – 7pm. Welcome!
