Elena Näsänen, Pekka Sassi, Rita Jokiranta
PREface – stories through the lens
May 8–29, 2010
Opening May 7, 6-9 pm
The exhibition presents three internationally emerging artists from Finland, Elena Näsänen, Pekka Sassi and Rita Jokiranta, all of them working with video art.
Their works are dealing with different ways of narratives and show three aspects to moving images, completing each other. Both similarities and differences are found in their works which often have a starting point in landscape or urban views, but each of them uses his or her own perspectives to create suspense and interpretations. Their methods vary from elements of traditional filmmaking with staged scenes to experimental video, constructed images and found footage, accompanied with movie-like music, digital sound or no audio.
