Metamorphosis by Hannaleena Heiska screened at Kinoskop Festival, Serbia

Hannaleena Heiska’s short film Metamorphosis (2022) has been selected to Kinoskop – Analog Experimental Film Festival. The Festival is held on December 2-4 2022 in Belgrade, Serbia. Metamorphosis is part of a screening called “Bodies in Ecstasy“, taking place on December 2, at 9 PM, in Art Bioskop Kolarac, Studenski Trg 5.

“What happens when the audience and staff have left and the art begins to live its own life?” Metamorphosis suggests indulging in a viewing experience and surrendering to the introduction of non-verbal narration. Metamorphosis is an experimental short film shot on 16mm black and white film that combines painting and contemporary ballet. The film is the result of an interdisciplinary collaboration between visual artist Hannaleena Heiska and dancer-choreographer Minna Tervamäki. It was shot in the empty exhibition hall of the Espoo Museum of Modern Art EMMA.

Hannaleena Heiska has actively participated in exhibitions around the world after graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki in 2006. Heiska was an Ars Fennica candidate in 2011 and the same year she won the William Thuring award. She works with painting, drawing, moving image and performance, and collaborates interdisciplinary with dancer-choreographer Minna Tervamäki. Heiska’s works are often wrapped around the possibilities of science, the mystery of life and existence.
