In her new group performance ÖH Sonja Jokiniemi creates a multisensorial textile environment using handmade rugs as well as knotting and sewing techniques, in order to bind together a sensorial logic as a choreographic proposition. Here colours narrate and textures dialogue.
In ÖH , sensuality, hybrids and the uncanny create an artistic world of discovery, divergence and liberation from binaries. Jokiniemi searches between human and non-human beings for a space where the naive, intimate, surreal and unknown touch each other, a space for beauty that stands alone alongside mainstream aesthetics, while gearing towards a powerful metaphor for resistance and escape from categorization and limiting forms.
A catalogue of drawn images think the subconscious of the work, where drawings sculpt the performers’ embodiment and weave into textile. This is a long duration haptic performance that invites the audience to non-linear logic of weaving meaning and contact.
Sonja Jokiniemi is a choreographer, performer and visual artist. Her works deal with creation of alternative and multitextural languages, narrations and logics. She combines textile, drawing and live performance in her works that reach towards a mesh of human and non-human relationships, thinking images and speaking textures. Tactility and hapticity are important aspects in proposing ways of knowledge production.
