Today We Live

Heiska Hannaleena

Today We Live is an anonymous group portrait, shot in a rock club. Slow motion footage underlines the dancing audience's fleeing motions and facial expressions. Erik Satie's orchestral music makes a counterpoint to the dancers' aggressive movements.

Hannaleena Heiska has actively participated in exhibitions around the world since graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, in 2006. She works with painting, drawing and moving image. Since 2016, Heiska has also been working on multi-disciplinary performances with the dancer and choreographer Minna Tervamäki. Their first collaborative piece Trace received its premiere at Espoo Museum of Modern Art - EMMA in November 2016. Their collaboration is an encounter between two modes of presentation and expression, a work that comes into being and develops in space and time, in which painting and dance, colours and bodily movements, are combined, in tandem with profound interaction between the two artists.
