Sala del Camino, Venice
Research Pavilion
Varied works on view from Uniarts Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts students

A set of three Camino Events by Uniarts Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts master’s students in the Research Pavilion in Venice

For the Camino Event series Artistic Agency / Agency of Art eight master’s students from the Academy of Fine Arts have been chosen through an open application to bring their works to the Research Pavilion September 13 to 15.

Say It Loud!, a recent printmaking course at the Academy of Fine Arts, involved creating posters for public space where the Research Pavilion’s theme of utopian access functioned as a backdrop. The course work of four of the course’s students, Emma Peura, Susanna Autio, Tuomas Holst and Suvi Sysi, will culminate in the Camino Event in Venice. The posters are going to be installed both in the Pavilion’s exhibition space as well as in the public space in Venice and Helsinki.  Other participants of the Say It Loud! course, whose works will also be on view in Venice, include Inma Herrera, Maria Hekkala, Noora Nio-Juss, Risako Yamanoi and Jemma Watling.

Yassine Kahled will perform a piece Monitor Man, where he creates an embodiment of virtual communication in public space. The performance gives the public an opportunity to meet strangers who are far away.

Gregoire Rousseau’s audio performance Toh – Bohu is based on score production. The audio performance uses self-designed audio devices from previous audio practice and operates as research on the score as a dynamic record. Once the performance is achieved, the score and the audio device will be made accessible to the audience.

Flora Bouteille will give a lecture performance called Younger Than God that deals with transhumanism.

Andrey Bogush will show unfolded vinyls and do a reading of Bogdán Ablozhnyy’s novel commissioned especially for the event.

Caspar Stracke will install a dinner table with two functions: It serves for wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as the surface of a horizontal video projection. The displayed images will create a connection between speculative architectures – the food assemblages of Daniel Spoerri projected onto the real food and Calvino-inspired speculative city architecture drawings laid over the bird’s eye view of Venice. The table also serves as a video display for the student’s projects.

Organised by the Academy of Fine Arts of Uniarts Helsinki.
