Z-free: Suvi Kemppainen, Aleksi Holkko, Niko Hallikainen
In their z-free sessions, workgroup Niko Hallikainen, Aleksi Holkko and Suvi Kemppainen work on their new performance called Mountains.
”Mountains is a journey into grandiloquence, soulscapes and sentimentality. We work with the functionalities of atmosphere and emotion, reaching for mountain peaks and lagoons that we use to show the mind a timeless yet unfamiliar emotional state – or hundreds of them.
We spend time at poolsides and in motel rooms, we steal a rented cabriolet that only one of us knows how to drive; we drive through the desert at night and we see so many colours in the dark that we all pass out at the same time."
Z-free is Zodiak's event concept where selected artists are given the opportunity to present their working methods, work on their ideas and engage the audience in the creative process.
