Leena and Kalle Nio: Painting Machine
Leena Nio (b. 1982), a visual artist renowned for her multilayered paintings, and Kalle Nio (b. 1982), visual artist, magician and theatre director, will present their first joint production at EMMA in autumn 2021. Navigating a space between live performance and visual art, the work will create an illusion of the painting process by employing techniques ordinarily used in magic. Painting Machine consists of a painting installation and weekly performances each of which will result in a new painting.
