Suomi kuvaa collective “Quite Cube” 01.-10.08.2014
A park next to Karamzininranta street, behind Finlandia Hall, URB festival 2014 , Kiasma Theatre.
The Suomi kuvaa collective takes their installation to the city, dealing with the theme of space. The installation consists of four separate white walls that can be seen as an imaginary stage, simultaneously opening and closing the boundaries of our shared and private space. The project is set up in a wasteland located in Helsinki. A city space, being in a state of constant change, interacts with the plain white surfaces.
Suomi kuvaa collective: Tuomas Linna, Juuso Noronkoski, Sauli Sirviö & Matti Tanskanen.
Seminääri-Discoveries of Identity
“Seminääri-Discoveries of Identity (Seminar limits)” deals with being oneself. The project is a journey towards self-images caused by changing roles. How are our patterns of behavior constructed, and do we have any power to affect them? The Seminääri asks who’s the coolest; who’s a guru of being cool?
The performance is created with young people employed by the City of Helsinki. The material has been collaboratively generated in July with the directors, visual artist Sauli Sirviö, and theatre director Elina Izarra Ollikainen.

Hi Pori Biennial organizers! Yesterday we hopped on a car train in Pasila.
Our destination was Tampere where we planned to hop on a freight train that should have taken us to Pori. The thing is that we did not have time to leave the car train in Tampere because the car train was connected to another train as soon as we arrived to the railway station. According to Google maps we are moving towards Kolari.
The speed is now 160 kilometers per hour. We do not have enough money for return tickets, so it might take some time before we are back in southern Finland…
This also means that my participation in the Biennial is at stake. This is a big disappointment for me and I´m deeply sorry about the mess. For compensation I attached three videoclips of our trip towards Kolari. My mobile phones battery is almost dead and soon I will be out of reach. I will try to contact you again as soon as possible and I hope from the bottom of my heart that I will reach Pori before the Biennial is over.
Have a nice opening party!
