Sketches of Pain

Pink Twins

In 2006 Pink Twins played with a local metal band Zugeer L in Mongolia's oldest disco, Chameleon Disco Club in Ulaanbaatar. Sketches of Pain is based on the concert footage but rather than being a direct documentary, it gets a psychedelic treatment and is a reinterpretation of the meeting between artists and other people with little in common other than music. What happens when artists from different cultural backgrounds, with different languages and musical conventions take to the stage together? Achieving a meeting point inevitably involves great pain.

Pink Twins was formed in 1997 by brothers Juha and Vesa Vehviläinen, artists, filmmakers and electronic musicians, born and raised in Helsinki, Finland. Since starting in the hotbed of arts and underground music that was turn-of-the-millennium Helsinki, Pink Twins have polished their musical and visual output into a distinctive and superimmersive audiovisual mayhem. The colourful, abstract cyclic flow of their animation works focus on human perception, its functionality and limits. In their audiovisual live performances Pink Twins create a wholesome and transformative experience with an extremely detailed wall of sound and immersive video projections. Pink Twins have presented their works in exhibitions and festivals on all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.
