MRCVE (Jussi Matilainen, Asko Nivala, Janne Rahkila ja Simo Saarikoski)
Time After Time (2017)
18.12.2018 – 17.02.2019



”Time After Time” is a 57 minutes long documentary video, which focuses, from a personal point of view, on the decay of time and its influence on an artist group, consisting of friends. The video is a retrospective review of MRCVE’s work and it discusses the way in which power is used in a group of colleagues and how the different points of view could be merged to an artwork. What kind of sacrifices have to be made to be able to work together and how far is one ready to go to achieve the common goal? The video is a study about friendship, time and how everything is intertwined in the end.


Dialogue of the video is in Finnish and it has English subtitles.

The MRCVE Artists Group was founded 2002 in Finland. The groups modus operandi is to openly incorporate both scientific and artistic methods in its works. During its years of operation, it has performed in Europe and United States in addition to various single events in Finland. The State of the Nation I-III series has been presented in Helsinki, Malmö (Sweden), New York (US) and Berlin (GER). MRCVE has also collaborated with German artist Johnny Amore in two projects: 7 for the Price of 1 (a performance tour in Germany and the Netherlands 2010) and Operation Neuschwanstein (Germany 2008). Research results that group has collected have been published as a book and videos.


During performances, which exploit the traditions of scientific presentation and performance art, the groups' research projects takes an artistic form as lectures transformed into theatrical spectacles. Documentations of these projects are realized through experimental media art. In a video screening, a viewer can find oneself part of a performance as images turn into flesh.

MRCVE are Jussi Matilainen, Asko Nivala, Janne Rahkila and Simo Saarikoski.
