The curator of Videokanava Online Gallery, visual artist Simo Saarikoski, has combined a selection of videos for the international W:OW project:
1. Linda Jasmin Mayer: ”Dove Fermarsi? (Where to Stop?)”
2. Liisa Ahola & Veera Salmio: ”Dictator”
3. Anna Knappe: ”Camp Europe”
4. Taina Valkonen: ”Forest Poem”
5. Veera Nelimarkka: ”Medical Record”
6. Sabotanic Garden: ”Uuno Turhabuto/King of Dance vol.2”
Foreword by Videokanava’s curator Simo Saarikoski
"The six videos forms a selection that deals with humanity from different perspectives. Timely reflection on the dignity of life and the inefficiency of global justice is present. There is also concern about the politicians´ methods of creating confrontation, as well as the frustration of how difficult for an individual can be to get help for his or her problems even in an organized society. At the same time, the selection tells about the continual search of man to find their own place in this world. Life can be full of adversity, but ultimately a simple insight can lead to inner peace. The viewers are able to identify with these themes, no matter which part of the world they come from."
