Jälki is an installation (and, in the future, a performance) that combines the practices of contemporary dance, choreography and sound, costume and light art in gallery context. The working group worked with the gallery space of Stoa during February 2022, formulating the installation and the upcoming performance in interaction with the surroundings. The values of working and the framework for thinking are diversity, ecology and being with unreadiness.
Jälki is based on Emitting Things project’s (2019–2021) performance materials that the working group rethinks and sets in new relationships. The installation also offers an opportunity to experience rinnakkaisuus_amongness audio performance published in June 2021.
An important way of working for the working group is a process-oriented approach, in which corporeality has been essential means for dialogue and creating content. One part of the installation is a performance, called Jäljellä olevaa, however due to the covid-19 restrictions, the performance part of the installation had to be postponed until the year 2023.
In Emitting Things, the convener of the project choreographer Lin Da is constantly looking for ways how art could serve as a place for encounters between humans and other beings. They are also interested in experimenting with the forms of art presentation in order to create new meeting points between the social and ecological aspects of life.
