”Show must go wrong” is a video installation based on personal experiences. It is about losing one’s capability to function in the everyday life emphasizing efficiency. The work operates at the boundaries of controllable and uncontrollable – exactly where the solidity of body and mind are questioned.

How the state of matter of a person changes when being under pressure or going through a burnout. How the connection disappears. How we endlessly fight against the gravity of exhaustion.

55–98 is an artist collective by Verna Kovanen and Krista Seppälä, founded in 2017. Their works explore the culture of overload and the importance of rest. Kovanen and Seppälä are the first year students in the Visual Culture and Contemporary Art (ViCCA) Master’s Programme at Aalto University.

Date: 9–23 March, 2018

Venue: Beta Space galleria, Otakaari 1 X, Espoo

Open mon-fri 8am–8pm, fri 8am–6pm
