HONKASALO - NIEMI - VIRTANEN

 

HONKASALO-NIEMI-VIRTANEN is a Helsinki based collective of three artists working in the fields of music, theatre, sculpture and time-based arts.

 

Our research-oriented and multi-disciplinary practice has as its main focal point the tension between historical narratives and the uncertain borderlands between scientific facts, myths and imagination. As a collective we are interested in microhistories, collections of stories taken from different places and times. We believe that there is always a reason why someone is forgotten in the sea of time, and that is why we are interested in the history of the ones who have lost. For the history that is forgotten has to be imagined.

 

We move as artists on the borderlands between art, history and science, working with different mediums and materials. The artistic outcomes can be characterized as being hybrids between theatre, music and the visual arts.
