Pilvi Takala: Among Others

daily 26.1. - 5.2.

Starting point: Reality Check, Schouwburgplein 54
Free entrance

Several monitors appear in semi-public spaces around the festival center. Takala invites us to follow her game of tresspassing and challenging social situations. In all of her videos and performances she causes a lot of confusion with her subversive role-play.

Staging social situations that run counter to some unspoken societal convention is the favorite game of Takala. Breaking the rules implicit in pseudo public contexts and situations, the artist (usually performing herself) exposes the closed systems at work, from office spaces to shopping malls and dancehalls.
