Romantic Melting Pot


We would like the opportunity to examine the similarity of childhood games and fairytales, especially black goat myth (Finish Santa) in collaboration between a Finnish rapper (Junnu Savolainen), a Korean performance artist (Hyunji Park) and puppet artist (Hwang Suyeon), an American performance artist (Nathaniel Hendrickson) and short filmmaker (Christopher Watkins) and an Italian interventionist artist (Gianluigi Biagini). Inspired by midsummer celebrations, Jack Smith’s film Normal Love, and our own artistic practices, we will come together to form a collective assemblage, combining these tales, and games to create one unique story to be made into a short film and a collective performance at the conclusion of the Saari Residence.
