Screen, as a term, is inherently riddled with division—it protects and projects. "Screen(ing)" speaks in and around the screen in order to explore the limits and possibilities of the screen as both a surface and a sorting mechanism.
"Screen(ing)" takes a stab at techno-intimacy as a way to rethink the digital divide. The artistic practices represented in "Screen(ing)" run the gamut from video, photography, and site-specific installation to sculpture, prose, and collage. Each artist approached the exhibition with vulnerability and with a willingness to experiment with the screen in order to discover how its multifaceted qualities might connect their artistic practice to an online audience.
By listening to a recording of a studio visit in all its rawness and peering in on a live stream showcasing the artist at work, spectators can partake in the screening, love on the artist, and get closer to the artists’ representational space inside the screen.
Through these two screens, audiences arrive at a subjective reconsideration of how artists make art, a discursive window past the screen and into the screening.

Sharing the same cultural roots of growing up in small Finnish towns in the 80’s and 90’s they decided to join forces outside their comfort zone and exhibit in Rotterdam. Their art references and echo’s the same global pop-culture icons vs. local mind-set of pre-internet Finland. What unites them is a common view of the world and of visual arts: That it is dead serious and lively fun at the same time. They all reflect on this in a unique way, using personal matter and visuals.
