2002 | Kino Yöllisiä Kuvia/Night-time Cinema

Elina Katara & Eija Hakkola | Night-time Cinema | 2002 | red curtains, video projection on a display window. Night-time Cinema could be viewed only from the street outside the gallery. It was a show for sleepless wanderers who happened to pass by. During daytime the window was covered with a red curtain. At nights the curtain was open and the cinema in operation. On the white screen one could see shadows of two hands rapidly painting constantly changing dream visions. Once an image was ready, the hands wiped the surface and started a new image on top of the remains of the old-one. The cinema was a combination of painting, animation and shadow-theatre.
