Day with a Juniper
Opening on January 21st from 9 to 11 am
In her new work Day with a Juniper the performance artist Annette Arlander takes a step deeper into her studies of the changing landscape. On August 3, 2019, she spent a day with an old juniper tree on Utö Island. Every hour from 7am until 9pm, Arlander sat for a while with the juniper. As the day passed quietly, she made notes on her observations and the thoughts that came to the surface. Arlander reading out these notes forms the soundtrack to the work (in English).
The Ground Beneath Her Feet
Opening on January 28th from 9 to 11 am
Sara Pathirane’s The Ground Beneath Her Feet is the first in a new suite of video works in which she studies the human body in the moving image. The work is a paean to the movements of humankind and nature, to the fragility and power of nature’s elements, and to all the women who inhabit this earth. In the piece, the choreographers Iina Taijonlahti, Suvi Tuominen and Laura Pietiläinen move in dialogue with the landscape.
Opening February 4th from 9 to 11 am
Painter Eeva-Riitta Eerola and media artist Jenni Toikka began working together in 2017. Lighthouse is their third collaborative project. The film was shot on 16mm film and is part of a larger, site-specific installation made and shown at Maison Louis Carré in Bazoches-sur-Guyonne, central France. The focus of the work is the house designed by Alvar Aalto near the village of Bazoches.
Opening on February 11th from 9 to 11 am
