Glitter Stories

Anna-Mari Nousiainen

What is video art? "Glitter, melted plastic, kaleidoscopes, colors and psychedelia", young women answer. Glitter Stories drew inspiration from young women between the ages of 17 to 24. Their responses formed a twisted world of it's own, where girls' objects become symbols, lucky charms and sometimes millstones; women turn against themselves and each other in throes of the brutal change. The altar built by others must be destroyed in order to build one's own, to be reborn.

Anna-Mari Nousiainen (b.1991) lives in Helsinki and works mainly in rural Finland. She is an artist and a filmmaker whose works often take place in forests and fields, outside cities. Nousiainen graduated from Tampere University of Applied Sciences where she studied cinematography and arts. Her works have been shown at various festivals and exhibitions. Nousiainen’s experimental films balance between delightful and disgusting. Creamy pastels turn into slime, falling teeth are in fact crystals, sweet girls paint their faces with blood. Everything is association. Dreams, warped memories and actual events merge into one – lines blur and dreams shift into reality. Every memory is equally important, whether it is true or false.
