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

image: Katarina Elvira Gudrunsdotter

Katarina Elvira Gudrunsdotter’s creative work is inspired by poetry, psychology, philosophy, mysticism and natural elements. She uses everything from traditional artistic materials to objects found on her daily walks. The materials embody a history characterised by the forces of nature or manual craft.

Opening ceremony on Friday, 4 April 2019, from 17:00–19:00. Welcome!

JAKOB JOHANNSEN – WAVES

6.4-12.5.2019
MUU Studio
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki
Open: Tue – Fri 12-17, Sat – Sun 12-16

kuva : Jakob Johannsen

The exhibition work ‘Waves’ affiliates Jakob Johannsen’s body of work on digital images in the expanded field to the analog photography. Johannsen’s interest lays in photography, that implements a media reflexive approach or deals with socio political relations in his everyday life. After working with photographic media through an abstract approach and with different hand craft materials, Johannsen see’s himself drawn back to photographic practice as the main material for his works. His focus in current projects lays on the photographic gaze and the reflection of image in a wider sense. The work ‘Waves’ is dealing with screen based technical inventions with influence on everyday life, which are always more visible to older generations, than to the ones who grew up with the media as their natural environment.

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

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

image: Dana Neilson, Closer to (My) Nature

 

The overarching theme in Dana Neilson’s work is the relationship humans have with their surroundings and how the physical world influences our interior selves.  In her video work Closer to (My) Nature she explores natural shapes and environments molding her body to them as opposed to the ubiquitous human drive to give shape to the land.

THOMAS WESTPHAL – DIACHRONICAL 2

23.2-31.3.2019
MUU Gallery

Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki, Finland
Open: Tue – Fri 12-17, Sat – Sun 12-16

image: Thomas Westphal, Diachronical 2

 

Diachronical 2, presented in MUU Gallery, is considered by the artists as the continuation of a project instead of a display of finished artworks. The exhibition is a follow-up of Diachronical 1, exhibited in Huuto Gallery (January, 2019). Now, four weeks after, Thomas shows the outcome of having followed a different branch of the decision tree. He has put himself in an interesting position by working on a single theme in two different spaces. A set of visual strategies allow both exhibitions to follow up on one another. This artistic double tapping allows for reflection on different production stages. Rather than creating individual pieces, the artist focused on the process of developing an idea, that may manifest itself in various forms and can leap between different media.

Opening of the exhibition on Friday 22 February 2019, from 5pm–7pm. Welcome!

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

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.

Opening on Friday 18 January 2019, from 5pm–7pm. Welcome!

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
Text: JOHN GAYER – MUU Gala 2018
Premier 21.11.2018, Helsinki

MUU Gala 2018 is a celebration of contemporary video art, which simultaneously marks the culmination of Artists’ Association MUU’s 30th anniversary of operation. 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.
