The Third Power

Performanssitaiteilijat Marja-Leena Sillanpää, Pär Thörn ja Leif Elggren
tutkivat aamiaiskeskustelujen, painomusteen ja väärinkuulemisten
esteettisiä implikaatioita. He paljastavat kuilun musiikin fragmentaarisen
orkesterimontun, jokapäiväisen elämän sankarillisten piirteiden ja
joukkotiedotusvälineiden tyhjyyden välillä. Tämä performatiivinen työ
toteutetaan pilkkomistekniikan, äänen, improvisaation ja liikkeen avulla.

Marja-Leena Sillanpää, born in Finland, lives and works in Stockholm. “I
use to say that I am working with death”. Her works start in the form of
texts which are taking on the form of ex books, films, sound or
installations. In the performance she starts with texts from her book
“Alla lever alla dör” often together with sounds.
