We have been on the road together for a long time. Working hard, taking care of each other, and travelling like nomads. Today it’s time to celebrate our first larger New Ghosts exhibition taking place here in Sydney @headonphotofest (Royal Botanic Garden, located next to Sydney Opera House.) The exhibition is packed with amazing photographers from all over the world and I’m so proud we two are included. ✌️😃✌️ C U at the opening and do not miss our Artist Talk/Performance tomorrow (Saturday May 4th 12.00 pm) at Paddington Town Hall. We are looking forward seeing you in the audience.
I would like to thank everyone who has helped, encouraged, trusted and supported us, our work, and our journey during the years. Special thanks goes to Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Frame Contemporary Art Finland, and Embassy of Finland in Canberra. 🌸
”As I became friends with the shadows, I asked them to dance with me.” Practice of Doing Nothing [Work in progress]. Photo by me – Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. Choreography by me and Karoliina Kauhanen. More details later this year…
Choreographer Maija Hirvanen is known for her thought-provoking and deliciously quirky works.
Hirvanen’s latest creation For those who have time examines habits formed by the rhythm of contemporary life. Imperfection, ardor, and beauty through sweat and emotions; these are the elements that the audience will encounter.
Aki-Pekka Sinikoski took the promotional photos for For those who have time. “I was basically asked to visualise the play in a photographic way. At that point there was only some parts of the choreography ready but we went through a lot of Maija’s ideas, thoughts, and the consept. After that I created the set design and lights for my photos.” explains Peki about the creative process behind these photos that run over Helsinki in November.
“I really enjoyed working with Maija – once again. She gave me a lot of artistic freedom and basically asked me to be part of their dance production crew at a early stage of the play. After I finished my part of the job, Maija continued the process with her main crew. You never know about the future but maybe there is even more to come with this artistic collaboration with her…”
