MIKA TAANILA

The Earth Who Fell To Man

Mika Taanila

The video installation The Earth Who Fell To Man is a sequel to Taanila’s reductionist film and sound pieces, such as My Silence from 2013. The elimination of the core of the film, the eradication of human form, transforms the film into a ‘deleted narrative’. The piece features shots from Nicolas Roeg’s legendary film The Man Who Fell To Earth (1976) starring David Bowie, yet without any recognizable human resemblance. Merely landscapes, building, backdrops, roads, sky and the earth are running in total disarray. The key element: mankind, or in this case the alien Thomas Jerome Newton in the iconic embodiment of David Bowie, is systematically deleted.

The shots are running upside down on screen and are enhanced with the acoustical accompaniment of earthquakes, falling rocks and landslides. The Earth (as the title suggests) seems to be falling to Man.

Mika Taanila (*1965) lives and works as filmmaker and visual artist in Helsinki. He will represent Finland in the Nordic Pavillon at the Venice Biennial in 2017.

In cooperation with balzer projects, Basel.

Artist's Space
Marianna Uutinen

MU P 2.001.M


Marianna Uutinen is known for her gestural-abstract, often large-format paintings. The artist, who lives in Helsinki and Berlin, likes unusual, glaring colors such as neon pink, but she also uses gold, silver and black. With their layers of paint on surfaces that are often crumpled and sometimes quite shiny, her works achieve an impressive presence and intensity. Spontaneous associations – such as glamour, kitsch and glittering night life – are deliberately awakened. But what initially evinces cool verve turns out on a second look to be a meticulous examination of the process of experimental painting. Marianna Uutinen uses poured paint, multiple overlapping of layers, random and controlled applications in order to explore in a profound manner the possibilities and limitations of contemporary painting.

Opening in the context of the Jazzahead! Festival with a concert by Jazz pianist Iro Haarla.
