J.P. Sipilä (Finland), born 1981, is a poet and video artist. Sipilä creates compositions that generate tranquil moving images in relation to poetic texts that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition. His poems appear as dreamlike fragments where the ”I” is never stable. By applying a poetic and often fragmented language, Sipilä creates emotional, meaningful poems regardless of if the works are written on paper, displayed on screen or composed within installations.

TOXI CITY

På Kunstnernes hus, søndag 1. februar kl 15.00

TOXI CITY (2014) is an elegiac hybrid-narrative film that follows six fictional characters who live in a near-future landscape along the US eastern seaboard which was one of the first industrialized port districts in North America and is today home to five of its largest oil refineries. The projects asks what how conditions of life would change if repeated storm surges and tides flooded the densely populated lands with toxins from the hundreds of sea-level petro-chemical industry sites and post-industrial brownfields. The fictions are interspersed with nonfictional accounts of deaths that occurred during recent storms in the area, most notably Hurricane Sandy. A recombinatory film uses computer code to draw fragments from a database in changing configurations every time it is shown. As some stories seem to resolve, others unravel. Just as with the conditions of ocean tides and tidal shores, the stories cycle and change without clear beginning or end. Rather, individuals grasp for meaning from fleeting conditions of a world in flux. As the characters paths intersect, story threads come together. These offer moments of resolution, contact and visions of the future, before the narratives are broken apart and a fresh cycle begins. It is a hybrid film in that it combines narrative elements with documentary imagery and elegiac nonfictional anecdotes, tying imagined futures to the realities of our contemporary condition. The inclusion of short fragments describing real lives lost in contemporary storms grounds the speculative elements of the climate change narrative. The fact that there are many of these stories of personal endings, and that viewers of the film never encounter the same combination of these fragments twice, reiterates the immense scale of loss that such disasters involve. TOXI•CITY was originally shown in 2013 as an installation at the Chemical Heritage Foundation of Philadelphia. In 2014 the project was expanded to run as feature-length combinatory film and exhibited at various festivals in the US and Europe. In 2015 it will be installed at the Innova Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Reading standing up

På Kunstnernes hus, lørdag 31. januar kl 19.00

If poetry is going to retain a shred of relevancy for a contemporary reader, it must embrace a poetic which is pelleticized, packages, re melted and contemporary.

WALKING GRAINY

TOXI CITY

På Kunstnernes hus, søndag 1. februar kl 15.00

TOXI CITY (2014) is an elegiac hybrid-narrative film that follows six fictional characters who live in a near-future landscape along the US eastern seaboard which was one of the first industrialized port districts in North America and is today home to five of its largest oil refineries. The projects asks what how conditions of life would change if repeated storm surges and tides flooded the densely populated lands with toxins from the hundreds of sea-level petro-chemical industry sites and post-industrial brownfields. The fictions are interspersed with nonfictional accounts of deaths that occurred during recent storms in the area, most notably Hurricane Sandy. A recombinatory film uses computer code to draw fragments from a database in changing configurations every time it is shown. As some stories seem to resolve, others unravel. Just as with the conditions of ocean tides and tidal shores, the stories cycle and change without clear beginning or end. Rather, individuals grasp for meaning from fleeting conditions of a world in flux. As the characters paths intersect, story threads come together. These offer moments of resolution, contact and visions of the future, before the narratives are broken apart and a fresh cycle begins. It is a hybrid film in that it combines narrative elements with documentary imagery and elegiac nonfictional anecdotes, tying imagined futures to the realities of our contemporary condition. The inclusion of short fragments describing real lives lost in contemporary storms grounds the speculative elements of the climate change narrative. The fact that there are many of these stories of personal endings, and that viewers of the film never encounter the same combination of these fragments twice, reiterates the immense scale of loss that such disasters involve. TOXI•CITY was originally shown in 2013 as an installation at the Chemical Heritage Foundation of Philadelphia. In 2014 the project was expanded to run as feature-length combinatory film and exhibited at various festivals in the US and Europe. In 2015 it will be installed at the Innova Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Reading standing up

På Kunstnernes hus, lørdag 31. januar kl 19.00

If poetry is going to retain a shred of relevancy for a contemporary reader, it must embrace a poetic which is pelleticized, packages, re melted and contemporary. Poetry, in the 21st century, should be read standing up with the same glancing disdain as advertising, billboards, logos and street signs.
