Performance and installation. Vallisaari, Helsinki. 2018.

“Insel” was a site sensitive performance that invited the audience to travel to the island of Vallisaari, just off the coast of Helsinki, Finland. Dealing with questions of home, abandonment, archaeology and memory, it consisted of two audio installations, a room installation, and a one-on-one performance. As part of the process I collected drift matter from the shores of the island where I spent several weeks. From some o the materials I created a bench and a stool that formed the room installation together with pieces of driftwood and other found objects.

“The boat to Vallisaari”
The audience listened to this track using headphones and a mp3 player. The length of it corresponds roughly with the duration of the ferry trip from Helsinki to the island of Vallisaari.

Hold a seashell to your ear – doesn’t it sound just like the static in your phone?

In this long distance performance I tried to address the difficulty of working and living in different places at the same time. The group exhibition “MAECP at work” in Helsinki was happening at the same time as an important show in Hamburg. So I decided to be present in Helsinki through an open phone line – the visitors of the exhibition were listening to everything that was happening on my side through speakers in the space and could engage in conversation with me. The video was a long loop of the evening sky over Porkkala Niemi, one of my favourite place.

Spring deals with questions of authorship, chance, performativity of the more-than-human. At the core of this 4 channel audio work is an ice block. The ice block melts, the sounds made by water dripping on various materials is being picked up by microphones and can be manipulated by the audience via two media controllers.
