Background Evening Jaakko Pallasvuo

During the Background Evening, 1646 will screen two earlier works by Jaakko Pallasvuo. Both are collaborations between Anni Puolakka and Jaakko Pallasvuo.We will be screening:

Café Helsinki
by Anni Puolakka and Jaakko Pallasvuo.
In Café Helsinki a cow and a fool meet to discuss the power of refusal.

Sacr3: Eternal Return
Eternal Return is the final part in the Sacre trilogy by Anni Puolakka and Jaakko Pallasvuo.
An unnamed protagonist breaks up with their extraterrestrial lover and runs away to Italy in search of new meaning. Seasons change while they repeat old familial conflicts, make experimental video art and are haunted by the idea of eternal return. Will our lives recur in the same form infinitely, with no escape?

Accompanying each solo exhibition, 1646 asks the artist to develop the content for a Background Evening. The Background Evenings nurture a direct interaction between the audience and the artists in an event based on discussion and exchange.

RSVP required, limited availability. Please get your tickets (free) here


We are delighted that 1646 can open its doors to visitors, keen to provide a welcoming space where you can immerse yourself in an exhibition, reflect, speculate, imagine.

The health of both visitors and staff are always paramount. We comply with the national coronavirus measures as stated by the RIVM. This means we need to work together, as staff and visitors, to make sure we can stay safe and stay open.
