Funny Finland?

PS1 - Arctic Hysteria: New Art from Finland
June 1, 2008 - September 21, 2008 (although it was still on when I went on the 29th of September).

This exhibition which brings together some of Finland's wackiest and surprisingly funny works. The stand out work was a collection video taped performances of workshops undertaken by artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen with a variety of groups across the globe. These workshops create comic songs derived from complaints brought up at the community workshops. Discussing serious political complaints in Singapore to wondering why the beer is expensive in the Birmingham, England city centre.

The joy derived from these works shouldn't be underestimated - sometimes people connect more discussing the things that annoy them more than the things they love. Brillant! Check out all the performances at
