About this Event

In anticipation of its 20th anniversary in 2021, Pixelache launches into the decade through the title of #Burn___, a program of events based in Helsinki that will span over the next two years, reflecting on our past as an organisation while finding new ways to design our future together.

Looking back at our heritage as what was once a festival of Electronic Art and Subcultures, Pixelache will in partnership with HYPERREAALIYAH co-curate a night of media performances and VJ sets which thematically relate to #Burn___

31. 01. 2020

19:00 - 23:00

Publics, Sturenkatu 37-41

Vallila, 00550 Helsinki

Pixelache Helsinki will join forces with HYPERREAALIYAH to co-curate a night of media performances and VJ sets which thematically relate to this year’s curatorial premise of #Burn___ and its exploration of contemporary psychological, social and environmental collapse, as well as our ways forward with recovery and resilience.

HYPERREAALIYAH, Eva-Liisa Orupõld and Folded Visuals will be the first artists featured in a sequence of monthly events building up the theme of #Burn___, prequel sessions to our Pixelache Helsinki Festival in June 2021, that itself leads into the 20th anniversary of the Festival.

Our public programme 2020 is initiated and proposed by Pixelache members and collaborators as an early exposure of our sparked hopes and consuming passions, with curiosities and critical heat that we can face and elaborate together during our next years. We hope to make plans towards renewal for new growth and furthering responsibility across generations.

Let’s make it through the next decade alive and together.

19:00 #Burn___ Launch - Program Facilitator Andrew Gryf Paterson introduces the thematic premise

19:30 Eva-Liisa Orupõld (Sound: Sandra Vuori)

20:30 Program Producer Steve Maher talks about 2020 content

20:00 Folded Visuals

21:00 - 23:00 Scheduled fun, conversation and frivolity. Then you go home.

HYPERREAALIYAH is a collectively simulated artist who’s scrabbling their way back into meaning. The name is a combination of two words, where hyperreality, or the “ecstasy of images”, is combined with aaliyah, a Hebrew word for ascent and refers to the return of diasporic Jews to the holy land of Israel.

The simulated artist argues that as hyperreality has become an everyday phenomenon, we are all in diaspora from meaning. Since 2014, HYPERREAALIYAH attempts to reveal the real behind the hyper(real) whilst questioning various structures of meaning production.

Folded Visuals takes the viewer to a secret garden after dark. Visions of lakes, ferns and soft moss blend into mysterious signals and a splash of circuit. Whispers and faraway wanders, restless dreams of a long lost drone. She is a regular VJ and event producer in the Helsinki underground and club scene and organises the VJ festival Aavistus.

Eva-Liisa Orupõld brings her multimedia performance “Bees & Honey” to our launch event Bees & Honey is a selfie video and audio performance by Eva-Liisa Orupõld. It takes a stand to save the world. The impact of the existence of bees, bumblebees and wasps on our planet is undeniable. Still, the media gives tips on how to kill bee communities. On a closer look, our lives are not very different.

”You were born, now probably working and later you die.”

Eva-Liisa Orupõld is a visual artist working with photography and video. Gives likes to selfies and bums.

The programme is made possible by the City of Helsinki, TAIKE and Publics.
