Wear and Tear

10.9. – 15.9.



Wear and Tear is an audiovisual installation initiated by Emma Fält & Sonja Jokiniemi and based on a series of workshops held in Hanko, Helsinki and Kuopio.

Wear and Tear is an audiovisual installation that invites visitors to reflect on their own relationship with the past, memories, death and decay through intimate archives that speak and touch before disappearing.

Wear and Tear is a part of Kulkue, a joint project between three Finnish art festivals. ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival (Kuopio), Hangö Teaterträff (Hanko), and Baltic Circle (Helsinki) create an exceptionally large-scale series of Finnish co-productions along with related tours. The project’s central goal is to promote the accessibility of the festivals and to prolong the life cycle of the performances. The project is financed by the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
