In Art gallery Kaari together with Oula Rytkönen

OULA RYTKÖNEN is a performance artist, sound designer and spectator living in Helsinki. They are fascinated by arts' and performativity's potential to form unlikely communalities, question institutional structures of everyday life and cherish and live through the worlds and perspectives overshadowed by them.

Their current doings are lot about trying to listen the sounds/voices that are there, but not heard or that are being interpreted in heavily exclusive and/or normative ways. Experimenting with different tools for listening, noticing, giving space, making space and sharing them as possible everyday life tools is an important motivator for their work and life.

They also find the borderline of authorship and spectatorship more and more vague in the society that is facing increasing disbelief in human operated, subject orientated control systems and more and more fluid understanding of authorship in the ever mediating interpretations of self-expression.

At the moment they are concerned about their relationship with kinetics of gathering, cooking and eating, excited about parasitic economies and working with urban drifting exercises. They are thinking and doing aforementioned things with, through, among and by friends, horrors, strangers and others. They do not exist alone.
