Curated by Scott McGovern

Art Fair Suomi is a unique meeting point of art for international artists, audiences, and art professionals in Helsinki, Finland. It features booths from artist run centres across Scandinavia, Europe, and around the world and features discussions, screenings, performances, and social events for participants.
Ed Video presents contemporary video, sculpture, painting, and embroidery by four artists – Tyler Durbano, Sharmistha Kar, Jessica Mensch, and Emily Pelstring.  Together, their work will allure audiences by creating a mysterious, voyeuristic, fetish-like atmosphere.

A special live AV performance of Mourning of the Living Past by Inflatable Deities (Emily Pelstring and Jessica Mensch) will take place at the VIP reception.

Many thanks to the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council for support of this international initiative.
