Parting With Return (You’re So Busy)

OPENING 2 Sept, 6-10pm

Performances: 2 & 16 Sep, 6 – 10pm

Exhibition: 3 – 16 Sep

Parting With Return (You’re So Busy) is not only the title of the exhibition in the Vapaan Taiteen Tila bunker in Helsinki, but a call to softly carve out time from our overstretched lives and increasingly complicated global issues in a reflective and nurturing space aimed at the celebration of artistic exchange.With installations, sculptures, videos, audio and an extensive performance programme, the production celebrates artists who have travelled through and taken influence from Berlin and Helsinki, reflecting on the open possibilities for artistic exchange and interpersonal understanding, continuing to build on the established cultural bridge that exists between the two cities.

With works and performances by Biret and Gáddja Haarla Pieski, Hexorcismos, Landys Roimola, Aziz Hazara, T.E.H.D.A.S collective, Lotta Blomberg, KMRU, Sini Henttu with Sitoi and Exploited Body, Mariam Falaileh, Haesoo Jung, Ben Glas, Hayden Dean, and a. modica amongst others.

A club night at a nearby secret location will draw the opening night to a close so keep an eye out for this space.

This is a symbiotic production by Focus Group and Jenni Holma with support from the city of Helsinki.
