No, it's only emo if you rip out your own heart and give it to someone you have a childish crush on. If you tear out someone elses heart and go "grrrr!", that's just mean.

it was a cool exhibit. i would've used the space a bit differently, but the works are what matter, and some of them were really good.

i was originally gonna use the space in a lot different way, but just run out of time to do it as i had planned...

for those who understand finnish, here is a pressreview of the exhibition:

Separate taiteenlajit ovat perinteisesti averaging ammatteina exceedingly hereditary. Thus savour olevan further. Esimerkiksi Kuvataideakatemiasta is past year graduate or is unprepared more artist offspring. One näistä is radical lopputyönäyttelyään introducing Overcast Reed , whose parent , around Marshland and world videokameroineen commuting Erkki Reed , is well-known ikianarkistisesta asenteestaan and loputtomasta energiastaan.

Is what I get from machine translation. All that really makes sense is "more artist offspring".

A very quick and bad translation:

Different forms of art have traditionally been quite hereditary as professions. It seems to still be so. For example in the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts during the recent years there have been several offspring of artists that have either graduated or are graduating. One of these is Pilvari Pirtola, who is just now showcasing his Master's Degree exhibition. His father, Erkki Pirtola who travels around Finland and around the world with his video camera, is known for his ever anarchistic attitude and an endless amount of energy.

The apple hasn't fallen far down from the tree. I thought of acquainting myself with Pirtola's previous video works before I go to see the exhibition. And that's how I spent the evening, and I would've spent another. Despite his young age, the beginning artists has created over one hundred video pieces in 2000-2007.

Pirtola probably doesn't like being compared with his father, but he will definitely have to weather that, and that's why it's fun to realize, that the apple has indeed fallen far enough. The son lives in a different time from his father, and it shows, even though the attitude is similar. Pirtola's works are characterized by recycling and noise music. The exhibition space is dominated by electronic devices and displays taken from trash, through which the experimental music and the moving (?) find their viewer. There are also paintings done on a scavenged paper, and graphical prints.

Pirtola's attitude seems harsh, and he's clearly also quite political. The viewer who is saturated with traditional aesthetic might be confused. The atmosphere can feel quite chaotic, even anxious. But that is how it should be, because the criticism towards society that's being generated through art should not be easy. The image does not only point a finger at you, but sometimes also comes at you - just the world itself.

If you just keep on wondering what it's all about, it is worth remembering that this kind of expression has long traditions. While watching Pirtola I was immediatly reminded of early Finnish paragon of experimental film, Eino Ruutsalo (1921-2001), whose output never got the understanding it deserved during the artists lifetime. And you can go even further and reminisce the roots of noise music in Italian futurism, for example Luigi Russolo's (1885-1947) works and his manifesto of futuristic music from 1913. I am now familiar with Pirtola's sense of tradition, but he can be neatly placed also in a continuum like this.

In addition to fine art, Pirtola has also become known in music circles; his bands and projects are many. He's also a seasoned performance artists. As paradoxal as it might be to say it out loud in the public, it has to be said, that here's an artist worth following. Pirtola has what it takes to be a star. But luckily a Net surfer will find his or her way from Pirtola's web page to the Iraqi Body Count site, so the real, crude world will not be forgotten. And that's what Pirtola probably wants.

You really DO have a deathwish, don'tcha?

Nothing as such, but this is a demoscene website after all. If you said that about a demo it'd sound like an insult.
