<p> Film without Film is Mika Taanila’s first solo exhibition at Galerie Anhava. </p>
<p>Using the moving image in versatile ways, Taanila’s work often focuses on the complex relationship between technology and the human mind. It asks: What is film? </p>
<p>Taanila’s art is characterised by the kind of thought experiments typical of conceptual art, subtle humour, and a longing for aesthetics that eschews rigid proceduralism. </p>
<p>The conceptual premises and manner of production of the works in the exhibition create a kind of narrative in which the object of humour is hard to define unambiguously. </p>
<p>Mika Taanila (b. 1965) works with documentary film, experimental film and visual art. He has received numerous awards, both in Finland and internationally. Taanila was awarded the prestigious Ars Fennica prize in 2015. </p>
