FILM SCREENING AND BOOK PRESENTATION of an interdisciplinary art project (visual arts and music/sound).
Et le passé revit le temps d’une visite (Eng: And the past comes alive again for the span of a visit) is an interdisciplinary project carried out by composer Walter Sallinen and visual artist Markus Jäntti-Tuominen from 2017 to 2022. The concept is based on the origin story of Modest Mussorgsky’s 1874 piano work Pictures at an Exhibition, in which he reflected on a visit to a show of works by painter Viktor Hartmann. Jäntti-Tuominen and Sallinen, in turn, mirror this artistic experience by also combining visual art and music/sound.
The concrete result of the project is an audiovisual catalogue featuring the visual works of Markus Jäntti-Tuominen and the compositions of Walter Sallinen. A documentary video work will also be premiered, bringing together the visual and sound works created as part of the project.
The event will be held in English and German.
