Antti Tanttu’s Qualia (2017) was selected in the Nordic-Baltic Competition of Fredrikstad Animation Festival, held in Norway from October 25–28. Qualia will be screened in the Competition Programme 1, on Thursday, October 25, at 16:30, and on Saturday, October 27, at 14:15.
Blackboard animation Qualia seeks for the essence of experience. There is no such thing as same feeling, same pain, same colour. Qualia is always subjective. The essence of universal experience is unreachable.
Antti Tanttu was born in Malaga, Spain and currently lives and works in Helsinki. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki between 1984–89. His works often deal with issues such as solitude, absence and longing. Tanttu has participated in solo and group exhibitions since 1986 in e.g. Gallery Heino in Helsinki, Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, Finland and Norrtälje Kunsthalle in Sweden, as well as in festivals and events around the world.
