Exhibition: Quiet Fulfilment

October 10-16, 2020
Goethe-Institut Boston
170 Beacon Street, Boston

Janne works in video, animation and photography. She observes how technology and capitalism abstract and restructure movement, space and time. Recent works examine the flight paths of airplanes, the rhythm of container ships, and robots in automated warehouses.

Her videos take standardized formats and automatization as a starting point to organize physical space by virtual means. They reference real locations and are based on filmed footage. Through the use of production and post-production methods new hybrid, alienated spaces arise out of her works that tip between real-physical and virtually constructed environments. These spaces offer a picture that is bound by the context and events of the site.They emphasize how a neoliberal dynamic deconstructs and transforms space and time and how virtualization, digitization, and optimization of processes foster the creation of mobile topologies.
