NASAN TUR: Agony
HALL, Wing and MEDIApoint

 

Nasan Tur works in an intermediate area between the urban and the gallery space, drawing his material from messages and tensions he finds in the urban environment. He uses the city and its various spaces as a venue for intervention and performance, recruiting local citizens as participants. Some of the projects are on such a large scale that their presentation requires streets to be complemented with gallery or museum spaces.

Maire Gullichsen and Modernism Serie

PROJECT ROOM

 

Kuraattori: 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.
(Timo Valjakka on Carolus Enckell, HS 27.09.2017)

Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion: Lightning Ride (2017)
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. 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.
