"Night Pieces" at Venice Biennale's Camino Events

Night Pieces: 3 x Spatial Access to ‘The Venice’ was displayed at Venice Camino Events.

NIGHT PIECES: 3 x SPATIAL ACCESS TO 'THE VENICE' exhibition consisted of spatial interventions, their documentations and installations by Liisa Ikonen, Elina Lifländer and Maiju Loukola, three scenographers and artist-researchers working at the Department of Film, Television and Scenography. 

NIGHT PIECES explored the "accessibility" into an archetypal site, the city of Venice, via spatial citation, rhythm and double-exposure.
Our survey is inspired by the book under the same title by E.T.A. Hoffmann (Nachtstücke, written in 1816–17). In his surreal narratives Hoffmann aims at bringing the incomprehensible and abnormal into a comprehensible form. Our point of orientation stems from this angle that seems to "call our attention towards recognising the horrendous consciousness of the darkest corners of human psyche".
