LIGHTNING RIDE (2017)
Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion
[16.10.2018 - 16.12.2018]

Screening STAIRCASE

With Lightning Ride, it is poles of technology, organics and mysticism that collide with electricity as a connecting point. The video is produced from excerpts of “Taser Certifications”, a sort of ceremony authorizing in the United States the use of Tasers in the condition of being first tased by someone else. Filtered with the famous Photoshop’s “oil painting effect”, slowed down and accompanied by a disturbing soundtrack, the succeeding images show us bodies and faces whose deformations and positions evoke a feeling of pain as well as a Christian ecstacy. Everything unfolds as if the miracle of electricity, symbol of the rationalization of the world, revived paradoxically an aspiration to transcendence, antipodes joining each other and disappearing in profit of a new map of possibilities.

PROJECT ROOM

Curator: Esko Nummelin
“I am merely a reorganiser,” Carolus Enckell said in the 1980s.
According to him, an artist does not need to emphasise himself, his uniqueness or his inventiveness. Everything exists already; the artist’s task is to give them meaning.

AGONY - KAMPPAILU
NASAN TUR
[28.09.2018 - 24.02.2019]

HALL, Wing and MEDIApoint

Curator: Anni Venäläinen


Nasan Tur(b. 1974) works in an intermediate area between the public and the gallery space, drawing his material from messages and tensions he finds in the urban environment. His works comment on the conflicts and failures of ideologies either directly or indirectly. While suggesting that we must struggle for fundamental democratic rights, such as freedom of the press, he also admits the risk that resistance can turn into violence, which expands the scope of his work to cover also the ethic dimension of both individuals and community action. The overarching theme of the exhibition therefore embraces all social struggle and the question of its justification. Nevertheless Tur also examines the individual’s experience: personal risk taking and opening oneself to ridicule. Yet the boldness to put oneself at risk, the ability to laugh at oneself, the tenacity to try again and again, and the ability to endure failure, these are all necessary if we want to defend important values.
