Series of conversations at Sinne, Helsinki

Gallery Sinne is organising a series of conversations about the exhibition Social Videoscapes from the North. The exhibition, curated by Lorella Scacco, was recently presented in Tammisaari, Finland and Milan, Italy. The exhibition showed the video production of five established artists: Maria Friberg (Sweden), Siri Hermansen (Norway), Eva Koch (Denmark), Rúrí (Iceland), Mika Taanila (Finland). The project continues now with seminars in the form of conversations between the curator and two of the artists in the group, Eva Koch and Mika Taanila, showing some extracts of their videos.

In her work, the Danish artist Eva Koch tells stories of ordinary people borrowing references from Art History. Being one of the Nordic pioneers in public video art, the conversation will focus on video installations in the urban space, showing another aspect of “social videoscape”.
