hiltunen squared.

two of my friends had openings last week. incidentally, both are named hiltunen. tatu and jenni. (not related, as far as i know.)

tatu hiltunen's video explorations into the phenomenology of masculinity titled jamais vu are shown at hippolyte gallery. it's a very small space and, therefore, i recommend visiting at an unpredictable hour rather than a saturday afternoon.

jenni hiltunen's make your own paintings at korjaamo is a combination of video and painting. jenni paints her friends and herself as creations of art, art personified, as people who become projects of art and artists simultaneously.

the hilarious and rather racy video is itself worth the visit.
