Antti Laitinen: Voyage, video, 2008

Premiere of the Performance Voyage in MUU gallery, moderated by artist Markus Renvall.


The content of the Performance Voyage is formed by the art works that were selected through an open call. Almost 200 artists sent their video performances worldwide. During the festival week in Turku, the videos will spread out all over, into some surprising and exceptional places, such as a café, a hair dresser’s, a restaurant and a convenience store.

Performance Voyage will be run, beside Turku, around Europe during 2011 – in Hamburg, Helsinki, Riga, Tallinn and Tromsø. Part of the videos selected by the jury will be displayed in the festival’s partnership-cities. Members of the video jury were Markus Renvall, Jari Kallio and Timo Soppela.
