Jussi Eerola’s Blue Honda Civic (2020) is included in a screening programme Signals and Circuits, on view in VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow, Ireland until January 31 2021. The screening was previously presented at Cork International Film Festival in November 2020.
The romantic landscape paintings often portrayed weather condition, topography of national landscape, religious themes, spirituality of nature and hunting scenes. Blue Honda Civic is a minimalistic road movie mirroring the emotions of the driver through the landscapes (s)he has chosen to look at.
