Happy International Week of the Deaf. In the centre of the International Week of the Deaf lies solidarity amongst the deaf and the celebration of this strong unity together with the rest of the world.
During the International Week of the Deaf, Kunsthalle Helsinki presents the popup event VISUAL MOTION ART in sign language, where two artists interpret the emotional states of Ugo Rondinone’s clowns. Combining different literatures of sign language, the artists make visible what we feel. The performance uses visual imagery and motion tobring the everyday life of sign language as part of the colourful exhibition. The performances take place during a guided tour in sign language and is meant for audiences participating in the guided tour and other museum visitors.
VISUAL MOTION ART is produced by Ursa Minor and presents poetry and storytelling in sign language as well as Visual Vernacular. Visual Vernacular is a form of storytelling based on poetry and mimicry, that combines motion, sign language, gestures and facial expressions.
Ursa Minor is a performingarts cooperative and a free theatre, that aims create solutions for encounters in the field of art and sign language.
