I Almost Said is the first time when JOKAklubi´s performance concepts are translated into a gallery exhibition. In October 2016 the exhibition opened succesfully at Hamburg´s Westwerk -gallery, and travels now to Hilbertraum, Berlin. Welcome!

JOKAklubi´s "The Long Goodbye" is a piece, made to the music of Karl Jonas Winqvist & Blood Music, where a video performance merges into a documentation of a street act. "The Ends" plays with the idea of the film, which is said to run in front our eyes as we die. How do the end credits of this film look like? "I Almost Said" is an installation including paintings and a song composed by JOKAklubi. The lyrics consist of sentences, which different people once wanted to say for someone – but didn ́t. And it still bothers.

Miia Rinne´s "Beautiful Confusion" is hand painted directly on 35 mm film and then scanned for digital after process. It is typical of Rinne to open-mindedly use different techniques and mix older and more recent material with each other and make something new out of them. The soundtrack of "Beautiful confusion" is built with the same principle as the image, using different technical layers. Rinne is interested in the integration of strong visual and auditory stimuli. No wonder that the films have a fanciful and hypnotic effect.

I Almost Said is supported by FRAME
