I will participate in a group show in Helsinki.

This is a sequel of “A Distant Duet” which is a film focused on the Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño.

p r o x y

May 26 – June 20, 2017
Opening: May 26, 12:30pm
Atski Gallery | NODE Gallery | Studio 7044
Arabia Campus
Hämeentie 135 C, 00560
Helsinki, Finland

p r o x y is an international group art exhibition that aims to reflect on the notions of displacement, remoteness and phenomenons associated with them.
With most of the artists working far from Helsinki and the curatorial team acting as authorized agents who follow their instructions and protocols, notions of trust, communication and cooperation will materialize in a territory that is itself shifting.

Works by:
Camille Tsvetoukhine (Paris)
eeefff – Dzina Zhuk, Nicolay Spesivtsev (Moscow – Minsk)
Leo Marz (Monterrey)
Maiko Jinushi (Tokyo – New York)
María Salgado (Madrid)
Narim Lee (Seoul – Helsinki)

With contributions from Dana Neilson, Miina Pohjolainen, Raúl Verduzco, Minna Kayra, Vanessa Kowalski and Lari Rantalainen.
You are warmly invited to the opening performance ARABIA proxy by María Salgado and Miina Pohjolainen which will take place at 12:30 sharp in Atski Gallery.
In her action María Salgado dictates through the phone from her house in Madrid a letter to Miina Poojolainen, who is in Helsinki. Miina, a native speaker of Finnish with no knowledge of Spanish whatsoever, pronounces in front of an audience the sounds that she can hear through a set of headphones. The performers use each other as human proxys or middle persons to make possible a text whose content only the translator to Finnish and the artist know first hand. What will it sound like? How much will be lost and how much will remain? “Me”, “you”, “here”, “there”, “this”, “today”, what or who will they name once de-contextualized and de-localized? Will the signal persist?

Curated by Vera Kavaleuskaya and Neme Arranz Ruiz

El Ranchito Korea-Japan

I participate in a group show in Matadero Madrid, Spain. This exhibition is a part of a residency program.

November 27th, 2015 – January 10th, 2016
NAVE 16 (Matadero Madrid)
This new edition of El Ranchito presents the work of eight artists from Spain, Japan and Korea, selected through public open calls organised by Matadero Madrid and the centres it has partnered with in this edition: Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) and the Goyang Residency Centre of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea (MMCA).

The artists and researchers who took part in this edition are Gun-hee Kim and Part-Time Suite from Korea, Nobuaki Itoh and Maiko Jinushi from Japan and Abelardo G. Fournier, Helena Grande, Jonathan Notario and Alejandra Pombo from Spain.

Zero Gravity is the title chosen jointly by the artists-in-residence. It is a reference to an environment of new conditions that one attempts to adapt to, a situation that is often replicated in the artist residency model, where artists look for a new ecosystem to inspire and enable development of their projects.

Matadero Madrid and AECID would like to thank the artists who participated in this edition for their work and effort during the residency. We would also like to thank our partner institutions for their collaboration and support, as well as Aleix Plademunt and Lys Villalba, the two Spanish artists currently undertaking a residency in Tokyo Wonder Site as part of the resident exchange programme, and Cristina Maya, who is undertaking a residency at the MMCA’s Goyang Centre.

The warm reception that the El Ranchito Residency Programme has met with has prompted us to continue to develop new exchange opportunities, working with new centres and creation spaces around the world. Three new open calls are currently underway for participation in the first edition of El Ranchito 2016, which will consist of two periods of residency: an initial residency in Matadero Madrid, coinciding with the ARCO Fair, and a second residency in the autumn at the HIAP (Helsinki), TWS (Tokyo) and Artista x Artista (Havana) centres.

The partnership between AECID and Matadero Madrid will thus continue in the year 2016, with a view towards further increasing the number of cultural agents (residency centres, artists, curators, etc.) that comprise the broad international network which gives shape to El Ranchito.

Three films by Maiko Jinushi (Tokyo)
Music performance by Dodge (Tokyo)
This presentation served in collaboration with Karina Roosvita (Yogya)

3 & 4 January 2014
Start at 8.00 pm
Ruang MES 56,
Jalan Minggiran No. 16 A,

This event is the screening of three films by Maiko Jinushi (Tokyo). “Super Young Chili” (2013) is comedy about the art world. It had be shown at Yoyo Art Bar, Koganecho Bazaar 2013, Yokohama. “Here and There, Spring and Winter” (2012) is the feature film about people lived in Tokyo after the earthquake and Fukushima disaster. It had be shown at Art Center Ongoing, Fukuoka Independent Film Festival and Theater Image Forum. “Voice” (2011) is her first video work and it is about individual confession. It had be shown at Art Center Ongoing.

The presentation will be accompanied with Dodge (Tokyo) performance. Dodge is a sound and poetry reading performance group. The member is Maiko Jinushi, Hitomi Tada and Erika Kikukawa. In this time, Maiko and Hitomi will perform.

This event collaborates with Karina Roosvita (Yogya) to improve the mood of the presentation.

Maiko Jinushi (born in 1984) is an artist based in Tokyo. She obtained her master degree in Painting, at Tama Art University, Tokyo. She was interested in personal stories and used it in her drawings along with poetic yet long titles. These long titles were extended into short stories and she reads them as her performance. In 2010, she started to develop her storytelling practices into video works. Her works were shown at Art Center Ongoing (Tokyo), Art Award Tokyo (Tokyo) and Fukuoka Independent Film Festival (Fukuoka).

Video screening kali ini akan menampilkan 3 (tiga) film oleh Maiko Jinushi (Tokyo). Film pertama berjudul “Super Young Chili” (2013), sebuah film komedi pendek mengenai dunia seni yang telah diputar di Yoyo Art Bar, Koganecho Bazaar 2013, Yokohama dengan Wok The Rock sebagai salah seorang pemerannya. Video kedua berjudul “Here and There, Spring and Winter” (2012), merupakan film panjang mengenai perasaan-perasaan penduduk Tokyo setelah gempa besar dan tragedi Fukushima. Film ini telah diputar di Art Center Ongoing, Fukuoka Independent Film Festival dan Theater Image Forum. Sedangkan film ketiga berjudul “Voice” (2011), berisikan pengakuan-pengakuan personal yang merupakan karya pertama Maiko. Film ini juga telah diputar di Art Center Ongoing.

Selain pemutaran video, akan tampil juga grup musik Dodge (Tokyo), sebuah grup musik yang beranggotakan Maiko Jinushi, Hitomi Tada dan Erika Kikukawa, yang merupakan grup dengan ciri pembacaan puisi yang diiringi bebunyian. Penampilan Dodge kali ini diwakili oleh Maiko dan Hitomi.

Untuk memperkental mood selama presentasi, event ini berkolaborasi dengan Karina Roosvita (Jogja) yang akan mendokumentasikan ekspresi-ekspresi penonton selama pemutaran.

Maiko Jinushi (lahir 1984) adalah seorang seniman yang tinggal di Tokyo. Dia mendapatkan gelar Master di bidang Seni Lukis dari Tama Art University, Tokyo. Dia tertarik dengan cerita-cerita personal dan menggunakannya dalam gambar dengan judul panjang yang puitis. Judul-judul panjang ini lalu dikembangkan menjadi cerita pendek yang ia bacakan sebagai performance. Mulai tahun 2010, dia mulai mengembangkan praktik berceritanya ke dalam karya-karya video. Karya-karyanya dipamerkan di Art Center Ongoing (Tokyo), Art Award Tokyo (Tokyo) dan Fukuoka Independent Film Festival (Fukuoka).
