TALK ABOUT SOCIETY

VIDEO INSTALLATION, 2018 / FILM, 2019

Talk About Society is a video work combining video images and photography-based animation. The underlying theme in the work are the various ways we discuss and talk about the society, or the state. Authoritarity, nostalgy, hubris, pessimism and grassroots democracy are symbolically represented and intertwined in the film. The three acts in the film depict images of a dangerous journey, the aftermath of a catastrophe and finally the shuffling of meanings and material, organic and man-made.

Talk About Society was supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland (TAIKE).

Installation: A three channel installation version was on display at Gallery Huuto, Helsinki in March 2018.

Short Film: A longer film edit with additional material and a new soundtrack was produced in 2019, to be premiered at the Turku Art Museum and also displayed at Mänttä Art Festival in Summer 2019.
