    The exhibition UN/SAFE in The Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art presents Finnish video art from prominent media artists of our country. Within the theme of security/insecurity we examine how the human handles changes or things that he or she finds strange within themselves or the surroundings. Rituals, places or fellow humans can be lifelines or security factors, but also be seen as threats or something scary.

    The exhibition presents the work of 10 artists. These are Marcus Lerviks, Johanna Lecklin, Harri Larjosto, Lauri Astala, Juhana Moisander, Ewa Gorzna, Lena Séraphin, Mikko Kuorinki, Outi Laine and Minna Suoniemi. Marcus Lerviks just recently represented Finland in the Moscow Bienniale. Lerviks’ newest work hasn’t been displayed earlier and represents the most recent video art in the exhibition.

    Time wise the works range from the early 2000’s until this day. Video art has in Finland become a more common art form just within a few decades. The art form, which places itself somewhere between the visual arts and films has at the same time also grown to contain many other forms of media and developed into something more complex in the constantly digitalizing world.

    The whole exhibition has mainly been collected from works from the catalogue of AV-arkki, The Distribution Centre for Finnish Media Art and work from the Swanljung collection, that are deponated at the Kuntsi Museum of Modern art. The exhibition has been produced by the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art.
