NEW MUU, an annual exhibition for MUU’s new artist members, is organized this year for the third time. The theme of this year’s exhibition is ”Artist at Work”. All five artists and groups participating in the exhibition are MUU’s new artist members from 2013-14. The NEW MUU exhibition consists of video and sound art, interactive media installations, photographs and installations.
Works exhibited in MUU Gallery and MUU Cable are produced by five artists or groups with different techniques. Some of the works are created specifically for the NEW MUU exhibition. Roberto Pugliese presents a timebound ice sculpture in MUU Gallery. Inspired by the artist’s own childhood, the work produces pictures and sounds. Linda Kronman and Andreas Zingerle create art on the theme of Internet scams. Ilona Niemi explores the thematics of the construction of female identity. Often located on the boundary between childhood and adulthood, her works are haunted by the disappearance of a childhood friend in 1988. Tatu Gustafsson’s installation Dismantling of the Book is a book in which every word is on a different page. Jukka-Pekka Jalovaara’s film short Tuohinen, a Long-range Patrol Man tells the story of a man who still lives in the days of the Finnish Continuation War and Marshal Mannerheim.
NEW MUU 2014 – Artist at Work is a part of Artists’ Association of Finland’s 150 year anniversary program.
