Still Struggling

by Noora Geagea


is a series of video and photo-paintings, that bid farewell to the character of the archetype suit-wearing male. Made in collaboration with the actor Niko Saarela, in each video work the main protagonist humorously acts out a seemingly every-day struggle, within various settings.

Depicted carrying a heavy suitcase through a snowy forest, falling asleep on the job and attempting to walk through crashing waves. Each absurd gesture reminds us that we must move forward while invoking an emotional response to his futile struggles and efforts.

The photo-painting works are stills of the same suit-wearing male but partly covered in paint. The intention is to transform the images into something else by adding another layer, meaning and idea.

The exhibit is open from Wednesday to Saturday
from 11.00 to 18.00
