SHEET NO4, 2018
16mm Film / HD, 11:25
The outlines and borders of a photograph and a human being. The title refers to a contact sheet; a sketch of a photograph, where different options and outlines are visible. The starting point of the work is interaction and interpretation between Pelkki and the multidisciplinary artist involved in the work; Emma Hammarén, Johan Jonason, Magnús Logi Kristinsson, Keiko Yamamoto as well as cinematographer Pietari Peltola and sound designer Anne Tolkkinen.

The work examines the length of a thought, the length of a moment. Through repetition and rhythm, the piece builds a sense of a narrative, distance and closeness at the same time. We are looking at a figure in an urban landscape, soon to be dislocated. The Gaze abandons and re-draws the images. Perception grapples with distances; between the figure and its landscape, between the viewer and the piece itself.

Embarkation is a film that is framed like a photograph. Starting from details on the ground, through movement of repetition it builds up into a single image, like a photograph that unveils the countless images it holds inside. With simultaneous presence and absence, the work explores the relationship between still and moving image. Excerpt of Embarkation / Vimeo link
