Parallel Realities on Screen is a compilation of video works that showcases recent experimental moving picture artworks from Finland. The programme is curated by Ilkka Pitkänen, visual artist and chair of MUU, with Minna Suoniemi, visual artist and lecturer at Aalto University. The show was curated from works by MUU member artists that featured at the Art Fair Suomi 19 festival. The evening begins with an artist talk with Pasi Autio, Ilkka Pitkänen and Marjo Viitala.

The curators set out to select recent works by prominent Finnish artists who work with the moving image. The works range from Sea, an experimental film painting by Miia Rinne, and Milja Viita’s Animal Bridge U-3033, shot on 35mm film, to narrative pieces such as Pasi Autio’s Aarne’s Window, Marjo Viitala’s Mirror, Juhani Koivumäki’s Hate Speech, Heidi Romo’s Memory and Pauliina Salminen’s Landscape Trail. Timo Wright describes his work Null Statue as an abstract sculpture, while Harri Piispanen’s Meatroot approaches video art through audiovisual poetry.

Parallel Realities on Screen is a fascinating compilation of Finnish moving image works that take as their themes social change, the transience of life, and the constant process of change. The curators wanted to show works that depict parallel realities where realism and imagination become blurred.

Works by MUU member artists are also on show at the Videoforma 7 festival on the 9th of November 2019 at the Alexandrinsky Theater in St Petersburg. Co-organised with the Elektromechanika music festival, the Videoforma 7 festival presents not only the Parallel Realities on Screen compilation but also works by Annette Arlander, Pasi Autio and Simo Saarikoski.

The event is supported by the Finnish Institute in St. Petersburg.
