MUU studio
nasanenheader1Elena Näsänen’s La Villette was shot in the La Cité science museum in Paris. In the video we see, reflected on water, an image of the bridge that connects the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie building, designed by Adrian Fainsilber, and the adjacent La Géode film theatre. The framing turns the space between the two buildings into a stage, with a parallel world reflected on the rippling surface of the water. The video consists of a single shot taken with a static camera. The tension in the piece derives from the movement within the image, accentuated by the soundtrack.


The works of Elena Näsänen combine video art with experimental cinema. She has exhibited her work in Sydney, Auckland, Madrid and Berlin.

Näsänen worked in Paris for four months in spring 2008. Her residence period at Cité Internationale des Arts was part of the “100% Finland” series of events showcasing Finnish art in France.
