Mika Vainio 'Time Examined'

£49.99

In the past thirteen years, Mika Vainio has exhibited in some of the major art spaces in europe and has collaborated with both a number of important artists and curators. since his musical work has been in the focus of attention, his installations have never gained the broader recognition they deserve – without good reason.

In the present book, an overview will give a clear outline of this segment of his oeuvre. also his realized soundtracks for other artists, in the genres of video, film, and dance are included.

Each work is presented with a significant selection of images (installation views, visuals or sketches) and an explanatory text to deliver its basic idea. in the two essays Carl Michael Von Hausswolff and Daniela Cascella – longtime companions and collaborators – delicately introduce vainio’s conceptions to further enlight the reader’s understanding. on the enclosed CDs one can find a selection of tracks created for the respective installations and soundtracks.


Catalogue + 2 audio cds, 92 pages, colour/monochrome, texts by Daniel Klemm, Daniela Cascella and carl Michael Von Hausswolff.
