Ankiò Kuikka’s (b. 1986, Finland) practice consists of incredibly adventurous moving image projects which are shown within self contained installation, normally an extension of the video work. Past projects range from 30-minutes of modernised Finnish folklore, being played out by a 20-strong cast, all shot on a smartphone in one continuous scene, to Hi- Def cinematic pieces shot across international locations. Kuikka’s videos have a haunting quality to them, a passive aggressiveness that befriends the viewer just before leaning in a little too close for comfort.

Are you sick of going to site-specific exhibitions where the artists have literally responded to the windows?
Or seeing a group show and it’s just work you’ve already seen online politely scattered around a white space?
This is not CHUMMING. Located at The Pipe Factory, a Grade-B listed industrial space in Glasgow’s historic Barras region, the exhibition is interested in the culture the space inhabits and the group show as a model for artists to cross over, further exploring new levels of discourse and engagement. Accompanying events include unique happenings with local musicians and filmmakers.
