The Imagic connects Sami poetry to the on-going climate change in the Northern Europe. This video work can also be seen as a kinetic meditation about the landscapes of the Arctic. The Imagic consists super 8mm film and archive material, those two materials become as one by the sound design of Pekka Aikio.

Elina Oikari is Helsinki-based filmmaker and visual artist. She received M.A. from the Aalto University Documentary Film Studies (2014). Oikari has made short films specially for film concerts in collaboration with musicians, composers and conductors. Oikari emphasizes experimental connections between image and sound in her works, whose themes are related to the classics of dramatic literature, experiences of otherness and the generational experience of the people born in 1980’s. Her works have been screened internationally at various film festivals and music events.

The exhibition has been supported by Tiina and Antti Herlin Foundation and the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
