SINIKOSKI – WÖYH! – V4RHE

March 24, 2017

I have directed a short film for WÖYH! and it will be released… NOW.

Onko perjantaisi ollut tähän mennessä tasainen ja ärsyttävän järkevä? Juo viisi kupillista kahvia ja katso tämä minun ja Jussin WÖYH:lle tekemä video niin lupaan, että tarkistelet maailmaa sen jälkeen uusin silmin.

“Tässä se nyt on, olitte valmiit tai ette: WÖYH!, V4RHE ja vuoden varmasti villein videotaideteos! …Tämä on taas niitä juttuja, että jos näitä ulkomaalaisille suureen ääneen esiteltäisiin, pitäisivät meitä hulluina. Eivätkä varmaan olisi aivan väärässäkään.” Saku Schildt/Soundi

SINIKOSKI x WÖYH!

March 18, 2017

What a wonderful night it was. Our V4RHE short film for WÖYH! had its world premier yesterday in a fully packed Andorra movie theater in Helsinki. I would like to share some of my thoughts after the premier:

1) I have never received such massive applauses and storm of positive feedback as after the screening. 🙏 Thank you!!!

2) I have now directed two music videos and photographed the album artwork and covers for three WÖYH! albums. For those we have created a lot of characters and visuals, ideas etc. Yesterday when people came to see our film at the #kaskelottirecordsgaala2017 many of you had costumes and clothes inspired by the things we have visualized on the videos and photos. I know that some of you have even created new art pieces based on our photos/visuals. Yesterday when I saw all you out there, it felt so fantastic it is hard to find words for it. You WÖYHÖ people have taken these videos and photos to the next level and made them your own. And I love it! When I looked around yesterday I saw seagulls, ballerinas, black metal masks, unicorns, monsters, space women, suits with feathers and golden glitter beards… you name it. For me it looked like WÖYH! people are like a big extended family where everybody can be who they are and come as they are.

Peace and love, Peki

TRE is one of the coolest spots in Helsinki right now with their interest in art/design/fashion/etc. So I’m really happy they wanted to do this story about the photo series we have been working with my daughter since 2013. And no worries, no Finnish skills needed, the interview is in English. 🙂
Peace & Love, Aki & Astrid

PRACTICE OF DOING NOTHING

January 2, 2017

aki-pekka_sinikoski_nothing_1

Sometimes you have the chance to work with things you are so proud of, it feels like you have swallowed the sun. And now it’s all waiting there to be released and it feels like there is so much light inside of you, that if some one would cut you in half, you would shine.

This is it. This is going to be a BIG one. For the first time in my life I’m working as choreographer together with Karoliina Kauhanen. Together we are walking from the darkness towards the light. Together we are creating a ceremony. Together we are making the Practice of Doing Nothing.

THANK YOU!

Closing time my friends! My first gallery exhibition with Last Machos is now over. Big and warm thank you to all the visitors and people who have helped me with this exhibition including friends, family members, and all my assistants – everyone who have helped me during the years. I would also like to thank Svenska Kulturfonden, Taike, Patricia Seppälän Säätiö, Jokes and Suomen Kulttuurirahasto who have funded my working during these years with Finnish Teens and Last Machos. It’s amazing to have all of you out there pushing me forward. So honestly: Thank you!

Aki-Pekka Sinikoski: Last Machos

I have been extremely happy that so many of you have seen my exhibition and many of you have even made a day trip from Helsinki to Porvoo to see my exhibition.
Today I even got a message from one of the visitors that she and her father had visited the exhibition and both of them were so touched that they couldn’t leave the exhibition with dry eyes. Another visitor told me the he had laughed hysterically there together with his dad and daughter.

…What more can I ask for?!? Strong emotional reactions with full scale. Thank you so much for all this wonderful feedback 🙏

Next week is the last week of my Last Machos exhibition; it will be there only until November 27th. Gallery will be open from Tuesday to Sunday. So be sure not to miss it!

2 x SINIKOSKI + ART RESIDENCY

July 6, 2016

Sinikoski & Sinikoski: Ghosts Watching Over Me

Hello there! I will be working at an art recidency here in Northern Finland in July. The first part I will work here alone. The last week I will be working together with my daughter on this photo series we are making together. It’s called Ghosts Watching Over Me.

I started to take these photos when my daughter was only four. I think this series is dealing with the relationship between father and daughter and their fears. When my daughter was younger she was afraid of totally other things than today when she is already eight years old.

We are really proud of this photo finished today. We hope it is important for you as well. Take care, you are important!

“She said she don’t want to show her face because her eyes were feeling blue and she had left them at home. I said it’s alright and that I sometimes felt the same.”
