MSL + Jaakko Pallasvuo @ CCA Derry, Jun 4 – Jul 23

3 June 2016

Performance collective MSL (Antti Jussila and Jari Kallio) and artist Jaakko Pallasvuo are presenting joint exhibition Bridge Over Troubled Water at Londonderry’s CCA Derry, opening June 4 and running to July 23.

Showing their work for the first time in Ireland and Northern Ireland, the Finnish artists explore ideas of “queerness, nonlinear time, and climate change anxiety” with a show named after the Simon & Garfunkel album and song of the same name. That’s except that the trio reimagine the 60s singer-songwriters as time-travelling protagonists who “navigate past, present, and future post-human landscapes”.

On display will be a sculptural installation featuring painting, costumes, and props, as well as new material filmed in Finland and its northernmost, underpopulated Lapland region at the border of Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic Sea.

See the CCA Derry website for details.**
