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 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.

TOM LÖNNQVIST – Policy Incertitude – My No More Culture vs Nature / MUU Cable

26.10.-4.11.2018
MUU Cable
Cable Factory, Tallberginkatu 1 C, Helsinki
Open: ma–pe 10–19, la–su 12–16

P1120928

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

Text: RITA LEPPINIEMI
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.

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.

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!

In an ecosystem of social media.

image: Roberto Pugliese – Aliasing

 

The ALIASING exhibition reflects on how self-image and representation are constructed in social media, particularly Facebook. It looks at the processes of representing oneself and fabricating multiple personas through the use of social media; how these get scattered and transformed in the online world. It looks at social media as a self-feeding ecosystem that learn from data we provide and creates restorative and self-reassuring frameworks, also known as filter bubbles.

Opening on Thursday 2 August 5pm – 7pm Welcome!

When the two of us were shivering in the cold rain to see who would stand it longer, you sent me a message with a smile: “That umbrella it comforts you forever if you just let it.”

Momentary Appearance: Katharsis is an installation in several parts with elements made of a fluorescent substance that glows under UV light. 

Opening of the exhibition in MUU Cable is on Thursday 2 August 2018 at 5-7 pm! Welcome!
