Featurette: EIJA-LIISA AHTILA
With her experimental video work, photographer and sculptures, Eija-Liisa Ahtila's explores themes such as death, relationships, and mental breakdown through what she describes as "human dramas". Her work experimenting with narrative in video through multiple screens virtually removing the two-dimensional cause and effect is fascinating. Grounded in extensive research, her application of moments to her multi-platform video tableau is in essence more painterly than cinematographic.
