MUU Kaapeli - Ilkka Pitkänen: Dérivia, 8.4.-15.5.2016
lkka Pitkänen: DÉRIVIA - multi-channel video installation, 360° 8 April - 15 May 2016, MUU Kaapeli, Helsinki, Finland A 360 degree video installation about the constantly shifting architectural diversity of Helsinki Dérivia is a video installation that explores sociocultural differences and similarities in Helsinki. As raw material for his work, artist Ilkka Pitkänen has taken digital photographs of buildings and public spaces in Helsinki constructed in different periods. The two-dimensional photographs are placed in a 3D virtual space to create a kind of collage. A travelling shot through the digital space allows viewers to observe the fictitious townscape from different angles. The footage is presented via several back projectors on a cylindrical screen that allows viewers to move inside the installation in the midst of events. The work also includes a surround soundtrack. Pitkänen’s work is a visual rendering of the constantly shifting architectural diversity of Helsinki. The installation combines a contemporary visual idiom with the ideas of Guy Debord and other situationists on psychogeography. In spite of its surrealistic appearance, Dérivia is also a highly distinctive documentation and portrait of Helsinki in our age. Exhibition is supported by Alfred Kordelin Foundation, AVEK and Finnish Cultural Foundation, Uusimaa Regional fund. Dérivia is also part of the official program of AAVE Festival, Helsinki, 11 – 17 April 2016. firstname.lastname@example.org, www.muu.fi
