STRETCHY ROOMS

2019, Oksasenkatu 11

Stretchy rooms (Venyvät huoneet) is a performative piece that, among other elements, consists of a video by Milja-Maria Terho and poems by Juulia Terho.

The piece approaches cloth and the act of dressing oneself as spaces and events that contain an opportunity for self-definition, play, and structuring one’s own culture. The performativity of gender and the self become visible in rituals that are in society often considered vain and feminine.
