FILM PAINTINGS (2008–2021)

In 2008, I made a painting on a hundred-meter-long film strip and named the painted film Pori–Helsinki. After that, five more works have been painted and edited as new layer upon Pori–Helsinki. The film has been in constant process of changing.
More about the process.

PANTAGRUEL'S MOUTH (2010), 3-channel video installation

4:40 min
montage: Miia Rinne
sound: Pentti Dassum 

Pantagruel´s Mouth consists of three video projections side by side, each showing the passing of a journey. Material comes from a variety of feature movies. Using short citations, I have built a new journey within the vast universe of original stories.

Pantagruel's Mouth relates to the human need to tell stories and fantasize. The title comes's from Renaissance writer F. Rabelais. In one of his story, the narrator-character gets lost in the mouth of the giant Pantagruel, and finds there a new world.


SKULL (2002)

Skull is a ride into driver's head.

Playing with boxes, 16 mm film, found footage, montage, and sound.



duration 4:00
montage: Miia Rinne

A collage of life, memories, love and belonging.
Sometimes the sound gives a hint of something coming,
and sometimes it refers to something already gone.
