Icons, Installation space specific art in Gallery Huuto Jätkäsaari 2013 Marja-Elina Uusitupa
Icons as part of a broader concept. Icons as holy images. Contemporary audiovisual equipment as icons with their icons. Inside and outside, inner and outer state of mind.
The Pike is the icon of our mind and our tradition. Pike has followed us from COMMENT I as a fairytale figure in the works of participating artists: Veikko Björk`s Tribute to Big Pike in Tolstjakovo in Russia and in Igor Monakhov´s Trail of Pike in Arabia in 2012 in Helsinki.
The video Jätkäsaari L3 Busholmen ( lenght 00:02:37) is a peep into the beautiful magazine drawn by Lars Sonck and its surrounding landscape. Jätkäsaari with its magazines and cranes is one of Helsinki´s icons.
Video/sound installation: THE STREET MOVIE/3 WINDOWS
The life of a street. Recorded in Germany during a long heat period. The soundscape consists of the natural, everyday sounds of the street. The actors and actresses are the passing pedestrians outside, which can barely be seen behind the wooden blinds through which it is filmed. The sounds from the street and the inside of the room form a third place, in which is the viewer.
