Peili /Mirror  short film, 2019,More about the film in Marjo Viitala’s artist page in AV-Arkki.

Rakastetuksi ja hyväksytyksi tulemisen kaipuu ajaa meitä etsimään toistemme läheisyyttä. Toisen ihmisen päästää kuitenkin helpommin lähelleen kuin toisen. Lähtökohdat ja säännöt eivät ole kaikille samat.

Longing for love and acceptance gets us to pursue the company of others. However, we tend to let some people closer than others. The same principles and rules do not apply to everyone.

Peili / Mirror (2014), installation

The ”Peili” work is based on the Mirror game familiar from childhood. The game is a metaphor for people’s social relationships. One part of the work is interactive. The viewers get to test their own experiences and to become part of the work.

 

 

Seksillä kotiin / Home With Sex (2014), installation

”Seksillä kotiin” is a study on people’s inner speech and messages that do not get through the way we want them to.

Event Horizon

Solo exhibition ”Event Horizon” examines one of the basic needs of human beings: intimacy. The whole consists of two video installations: ”Mirror” and ”Home With Sex”. Longing for intimacy is part of the need to be seen and understood. It is part of the need to be near someone both physically and mentally.

As media artist I try to bring forward people’s reactions in situations of encounter through various games and acting methods. My instrument is moving picture and my form installation. I seek reduced expression. By using different methods and games, I try to make the performers forget themselves and let the subtle hints of their bodies and expressions reveal their inner worlds in the present moment.
