I was scanning and archiving my films, when came across this set of photos from around 2000-2005.  Back in the days I used to do a lot of slideshows, I made those mainly for bands and live artists.

My live-slideshows were always more or less improvised. This particular set I found was used on my exhibition in Gallery Maa-tila back in 2006. It has 80 photos, since Kodak rotary tray fits 80 photos. Bit long for web use, but thought I just share it as it was.

I did change to digital photography round 2005, and it did change the way I shoot quite a lot. And I stopped doing live slideshows as well.

Pasila Gallery

In Pasila there is an old railroadtunnel, that was named the Gallery in the 80's. Back in the days it was very important for the Finnish graffiti-scene.

Tunnel is still there, railroad-tracks are gone, most of the graffiti is dated 2012 and there are some construction sites closing up. Still it has some strange glory that keeps me coming back there.

Young people probably paint their graffiti-walls or other visible places, but Gallery seems to attract oldschoolers like trama.

Pentti Otto Koskinen at Huuto Jätkänsaari

Pentti Otto Koskinen is a mystic figure in Finnish performance art. He has been around for a very long time, but you never see him on big festivals or other well produced things. I guess he performs mostly on the streets and shares just photos of his performances on the internet.

Some time ago "Kirkko ryhmä", the church group had lured him to perform in a Gallery, so I had to go to see what he was up to.

But well, I am not going to start explaining, here are the photos.   

Text says something like "How you speak to the God"

Psychic TV, Tavastia

I have allways been a big fan of Genesis P. Orridge: performance stuff with the Coum Transmissions, pioneering industrial music with Throbbing Gristle, art-pop of Psychic TV and strange body-art he ended up doing in his later years.

So I was pretty curious when I noticed that he is actually touring in Finland. I was a bit surprised he had ended up playing some kind of psychedelic space-rock, but I guess surprising people is one of their aim.

Somehow very warm and emotional gig, well it was Orridges birthday and everything.
