Antti Majava is a visual artist and writer who strives in his art as well as all his other
actions to find what it is all about. Majava is interested in hidden and unconscious
meanings and particularly the hiding of things in the centre of our attention so that our
understanding cannot reach them. His central working method is the observation of the
operational logic of individuals and groups by taking part in the workings of organizations
in different roles. From these observations he makes art and conclusions, out of which
Majava strives to produce strategies for the stopping of the development which endangers
the future of humankind and ecosystems. Majava is a founding member and director of the
Mustarinda Association. He works in Hyrynsalmi and Helsinki, Finland.
Deimantas NarkeviДЌius is an artist from Lithuania where he continues to live and work.
In collaboration with the Foundation of Cossack culture Narkevicius stages a concert of war
songs based on the traditional repertoire of the Cossack cultures. The Cossacks are
predominantly East Slavic peoples, originally from the regions of Ukraine and southern
Russia. They played a vital role in the historical and cultural development of both countries.
The selected repertoire of poignant and sorrowful songs from the borders of the empire
reflect upon the concepts of freedom and of the right to expression and self-determination,
engaging with a distinction between a very open, international cultural tradition and its
simplified current interpretation. Deimantas NarkeviДЌius started using film during the early
1990s. His films exercise the intricate practice of memory and portray a contemporary postSoviet society confronted with the painful processes of history. The camera offered him the
possibility of exploring different narratives, allowing him to play with the course of time. The
central characters of Narkevičius’s narratives are often absent from the screen, replaced by
objects, drawings, and other surrogates. He recently exhibited at the Museum of
Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA), Chicago; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and
the New Museum, New York.
