Life of Daniel Cajanus / The Finnish Giant, Hippolyte Gallery 2017
Life of Daniel Cajanus / The Finnish Giant, Hippolyte Gallery 2017Performance of The Life story of Daniel Cajanus, 'The Finnish Giant' (1703 - 1749) at House & Garden Exhibition, Helsinki 2017. The performance begins with a video presentation of a Skype recording of artist's father who plays a famous Dutch hymn on the trumpet. Juhana Cajanus - like Daniel Cajanus, also an ancestor of the artist - wrote new lyrics to the hymn, in 1683 making this hymn 'one of the hits of it's time'. After the video introduction Kilpeläinen tells the story of Daniel Cajanus using a map of Europe which is taped on the floor. Daniel Cajanus story ends 'in' Cajanus's giant coffin, also taped onto the floor. Other works at the exhibition include: Daniel Cajanus Poster Installation, video works, paintings, works on paper, embroidery, sculpture, photography, floor installation and performance. House & Garden Exhibition was curated with Kati Kivinen - PhD, curator, exhibitions  / Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA. Photo by Jari Flinck.

Tango Therapy Performance / Refugee Centre Helsinki 2016
Tango Therapy Performance / Refugee Centre Helsinki 2016‘Tango Therapy’ is a performance in which I sing to one person at a time sitting on two chairs opposite each other, while rest of the audience listens and watches the performance. Anyone form the audience is welcome to sit on the chair in their turn. The performance is an intimate and personal performance of songs, mainly of Finnish tangos without any technology or amplification. Human presence and the eye contact is important in this piece, understanding of Finnish language is not of importance, it is the melody and the sentiment that communicate beyond the boundaries of language. Tango Therapy has been very successful in different contexts one of the highlights being my visits to the refugee centres in Helsinki, where the refugees, inspired by Tango Therapy, sang songs from their own cultures in response, back to me.
