a long overdue update from one of the stretcher crew on the move, Amy Berk…

From London, Tate Modern: Elija-Liisa Ahtila- real characters, invented worlds April 30-July 28. Ahtila, a Finnish video artist, (who i hear was also a standout at documenta) displayed her fictional dark narratives in 10 multi-set room installations. Some rooms were over the top with supersized sets in often surprising arrangements competing with the compelling and commanding psychodramas onscreen. Photographs from an earlier woman in dog pose project were puerile and unfortunate. More info and images here.
