GROWING A LANGUAGE EXHIBITION IN HELSINKI AS PART OF PIXELACHE MINI-FESTIVALS
The title of the exhibition, Growing a Language, uses the word growing as opposed to developing because it wants to contest the idea of development in its entirety. Urban development for instance often excludes plants, animals, and other biological and emotional factors from its planning and implementation. The act of growing a common language implies the amplification of the relations between different creatures and their environments, being critical towards the typical rational mode of developing systems and realizing dreams.
The common discourse on sonic, visual, conceptual, or text-based approach, emerges from the different subjectivities, entangling and enlightening the intersections of the artists' practices.
The artist group Collective Intelligence will exhibit part of their ongoing artistic process during one week in Helsinki at Myymälä2 gallery. The show features a series of works realised between Finland, Germany and Sicily, on occasion of the artists’ participation to Manifesta12, and during their group residency at Fondazione Orestiadi. Their process will continue in October during the project Il Traffico, as part of Manifesta12’s 5x5x5 program.
Collective Intelligence participants are: Antti Ahonen (FI), Ionas Amelung (DE), Alan Bulfin (IE/FI), Johanna Fredriksson (FI), Jytte Hill (DE), Erika De Martino (IT/FI), Saša Nemec (SI/FI), Egle Oddo (IT/FI), Marjatta Oja (FI), Timo Tuhkanen (FI).
The exhibition in Myymälä2 is supported by Pixelache Helsinki and Myymälä2 gallery. Partners: Fondazione Orestiadi, Koelse.
