Videoforma 7 -festival showcases in November recent experimental moving image artworks from Finland. Parallel Realities on Screen 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. Artists are Miia Rinne, Milja Viita, Pasi Autio, Marjo Viitala, Juhani Koivumäki, Heidi Romo, Pauliina Salminen, Timo Wright, and Harri Piispanen.

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 screening begins at 15:30 with an artist talk with Pauliina Salminen, Ilkka Pitkänen and Minna Suoniemi.

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.

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