work in progress

Collection of work, a performance, audiovisual work and a manuscript. Its a collaborative work including a piece from dressmaker Matias Hirvonen, video work and a manuscript from SILVER BULLET SOLUTION - COLLABORATION and interviews from queer artist's. The Suit performance can be seen during autumn 2022, Silent madness exhibition in summer 2023, and the manuscript will be published online as well as in the exhibition in summer 2023.

 
All of the material works its way around the manuscript ”A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME”. The manuscript has poetry, pictures, paintings, raw material, short essays and interviews. A total waste of time is the first work of SILVER BULLET SOLUTIONS - Collaboration.

Merging poetry together as a book, video-work and a suit- the performance. It is an experimental study of what it means to be a poet, artist, interdiscplinary artist? Thematically it is a study of the third, the commonly worded "non-binary" or as SILVER BULLET SOLUTIONS-Collaboration says it: the trinary gender.


trinary

trī′nə-rē

adjective

  1. Consisting of three parts or
    proceeding by threes; ternary;
    having three elements, parts, or divisions



These three pieces the manuscript, the multimedia work and the suit can be potrayed passively, actively or in a more meta-sense. Presented in a gallery, in a performance or in the comfort of ones own home.

THE SUIT - performance

The suit performance is an intimate study of the non-binary experience where the historical position of the suit is at the center, as a metaphor and as a being of its own.

The performance has been funded by Arts promotion centre of Finland

They fixed their hair

They fixed their smile

Someone ask’s
Are you dressed in armor?
Someone ask’s
Are you smiling for us?
Someone ask’s
Are you here for us?


Are you here for us?
