Nina Kurtela: Inner Landscapes / Imaginary home

Nina Kurtela: Inner Landscapes / Imaginary home
7–9 June 2022
Pogon, Zagreb

The exhibition Inner Landscapes / Imaginary home by Croatian artist Nina Kurtela, co-produced by KID KIBLA, will be on view at Pogon in Zagreb (Croatia) from 7 to 9 June 2022. The exhibition opening will take place on Tuesday, 7 June 2022, at 8 p.m.

Nina Kurtela is presenting her video essay Dear Aki, three letters addressed to Aki Kaurismäki are accompanied by scenes filmed in Dubrovnik and Helsinki. In her letters, the artist addresses the renowned Finnish director as an old acquaintance, although in reality, they are letters without a recipient. In this case, the director's name denotes a protagonist who longs for a distant and idealized Elsewhere and functions as a counterpoint to the artist's longing for an identity that would »offer her more opportunities«. Dear Aki is, therefore, like Nina Kurtela for the unknown Finns, only a presumed identity in which one can inscribe one's expectations with and without prejudice.
