Welcome to the screening of the film Mansikkapaikka (2019–) by Jaana Kokko
• Time: Wednesday 28.9. at 18–20
• Address: Sinne, Iso Roobertinkatu 16, Helsinki
Jaana Kokko is an artist, filmmaker and educator based in Helsinki, having her background in arts and economics. In her practice she is now in the search of the common: the emergent need for the change that is starting from our practices of art making, learning and being together.
She is interested in the languages and places/ spaces of individuals in which the singularity of experience opens onto the collective and its historicity in ways that allow us to reflect on the ethical, political, and aesthetic dimensions not only of self-representation but also of the life itself as shared. Currently she is working with two bodies of films both located in the peripheries, trying to shift the gaze to the outskirts of the sight and hear.
Her work has been exhibited f.ex. at the Lithuanian National Gallery in Vilnius, Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga, Tallinn Art Hall, Helsinki Art Hall, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Joensuu Art Museum in Finland, Bucharest International Experimental Film Festival, Tampere Film Festival and Tokyo Media Art Festival. She is and has been teaching and lecturing f.ex. at the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, Turku Art Academy, Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn, Latvian Academy of Arts, Riga and Akademie der Bildende Künste, Nürnberg.
