Nothingness Finland

Panu Johansson is a contemporary artist and an experimental filmmaker from Finland. He works
with moving image, photography and sound. His works have been exhibited in various festivals,
exhibitions and microcinemas since the year 2000.

Reoccurring themes in Johansson's work are memories, landscape, the history of experimental film
and cultural history. When working with moving image he prefers analogue film, tough he is open
to all materials. Johansson collect images and sounds eagerly and also likes to use "found footage”
materials whenever possible. His works could be described with terms such as landscape film, diary
film or personal film.

Johansson is a member of MUU ry (Artists’ Association of Finland), AV-arkki (Centre for Finnish
Media Art), Artists' Association of Lapland and Northern Media Culture Association Magneetti. In
addition to his artistic work he has lately been active in organising and curating different kinds of
events in the field of media art in Northern Finland.

Nothingness Finland-exhibition leads the spectator to the grey territory of edge-lands that rings most urban centres in Finland. Humdrum roadsides, deteriorating sports facilities and apartment blocks made of concrete represent the real national landscape that is left between the city centres and the countryside and that surrounds us every day.
