Performance Voyage 7, a collection of international video performances, will be screened in Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia, EKKM on Tuesday 6th March. At the 14th Performance Voyage 7 screening the collection will be presented by PV7 artists Arja Renell and Jukka Silokunnas.


Performance Voyage is an annual collection of video performances that has been published in different themes since 2011 by the Artists’ Association MUU. The PV7 collection with the theme Protest Song Competition! has been screened around the globe in an effort to foster the ongoing conversations of political resistance within contemporary art. Protest songs typically reflect great social changes and the works of PV7 also present alternatives to existing circumstances. The collection contains works by 18 artists or groups from around the world. The artists featured in the Performance Voyage 7 collection are Kuesti Fraun, Kim Dotty Hachmann & Steffi Simmen, Sasha Huber & Petri Saarikko, Heidi Kilpeläinen, Francois Knoetze, Timo Kokko, Paweł Korbus, Vik Laschenov, Elin Magnusson, Elena Mazzi, Iwona Ogrodzka, Ignacio Pérez Pérez, Arja Renell, Kikka Rytkönen, Julia Schicker, Jukka Silokunnas, Niko Skorpio and Elizabeth Wurst.

EKKM (Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia) is a self-established non-profit initiative, that situates itself between official state-run institutions and artist-run-do-it-yourself venues. It is an unconventional concept of a contemporary art museum that works towards producing, exhibiting, collecting and popularizing local and international contemporary art while altering the prevailing working methods of established art institutions.  In 2011 EKKM initiated its own contemporary art prize, the Köler Prize, that is accompanied by an exhibition of the nominees.  www.ekkm.ee

In Tallinn two of Performance Voyage 7’s artists will be at present, Arja Renell and Jukka Silokunnas.

Artist Arja Renell is also an architect and teaches in Aalto University. Her work, Acts of Sorrow is a silent protest against the  environmental and social impacts of the Talvivaara / Terrafame nickel mine in Finland. The performance was born out of anger, frustration and sadness,  against those in power and responsible for the continued ecological destruction caused by the mining operations.

Visual- and street artist Jukka Silokunnas from the PV7-collection filmed his work 400ml of red with a single shot in 2016. 400ml of red examines the structures of graffiti culture purely through paint. The work explores its forms and power of expression focusing on movement and personal relationship to the space.
