Maiju Loukola // “Vertical Jesus” in Space Invaders III – aesthetically tolerable group exhibition/event. VERTICAL JESUS is a site-specific installation/intervention exploring the personal, imaginary and virtual Otaniemi as it is, and as it could be in dreams and alternate layers of realities in the future.
VERTICAL JESUS combines multisensory samples, focusing on visual and auditive material, produced by 2 artists (Maiju Loukola, scenographer-researcher and Taina Riikonen, sound artist-researcher) working with different mediums, creating seen-heard-imagined-fictious-future-views of the area. The method is based on constatnt measuring between the real and imaginary Otaniemi. As a framework for VERTICAL JESUS are a pop song by Depeche Mode and an early video work by Joan Jonas. The work is part of Loukola’s ongoing postdoctoral research.
Space Invaders III – Aesthetically tolerable (curated by Anna Jensen & Eliisa Suvanto) is more than a traditional exhibition, binding performance, intervention, site-specific, sound and visual art together. The four-day event is located inside the old bank of Otaniemi mall and its surroundings. What makes the public space aesthetically tolerable and how can one influence on these standards? Space Invaders is an ever-changing creature that aims to explore the existing ways to exhibit art. Otaniemi, Espoo/Esbo, Suomi 14.5.2015 – 17.5.2015
