Material Conditions of Inner Spaces by Erkka Nissinen selected for VIDEOMEDEJA in Novi Sad, Serbia, Oct 23 – 25
Erkka Nissinen’s (b. 1975) experimental short film Material Conditions of Inner Spaces has been selected to participate in the 19th International Video Festival VIDEOMEDEJA.
The festival takes place in Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina, in Novi Sad, Serbia from 23 to 25 of October 2015.
In the film, three men are trying to change the material conditions by social action. The lead characters of this absurdist slapstick musical are on a quest to find their inner spaces.
In little more than a decade, filmmaker and artist Erkka Nissinen has produced a body of work that has no equal: absurd, grotesque, bizarre, satirical.
Recently, the works of Nissinen have been presented at international festivals and events such as the WNDX Festival for Moving Image in Winnipeg, Canada‚ Kumu Art Film Festival in Tallinn, Estonia; VIDEOEX in Zurich, Switzerland; EMAF – European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück and International Short Film Festival Oberhausen in Germany, and Go Short – International Short Film Festival Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
Nissinen has studied in The Slade School of Fine Art in London and the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, Finland. During 2011 Rotterdam Art Fair Nissinen won the acclaimed Illy Prize. In 2013, he was awarded with the AVEK Prize for media art.
