The Spell of the Sensuous

Fit My Video Tag

The short film The Spell of the Sensuous is video poetry about the dance, which exists on a fragile surface, on crossroads of rivers, on a top of the trees, on a border of different Worlds. It's a dialog between a human being and his shadow.

That was the time when Words were like Magic. The human mind had mysterious powers. A word spoken by chance might have strange consequences. It would suddenly come alive and what people wanted to happen could happen - all you had to do was say it. Nobody could explain this: That's the way it was. - Nalungiaq, an Inuit woman

Integrity

Werde der du bist (Become the person, who you are) Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Integrity is a name of short film, inspired by Guillaume Apollinaire’s prose poem Rotten wizard (L’enchanteur pourrisant). The genre of this story is a philosophical parable, supports the main idea of film - searching of the way to your true self. Metaphysical images reflect deep feelings and emotions, conflicts of human and society, the dualism of essence in visually transcendent. Film uniquely combines super 8mm film shootings and 35mm still photography.

Wetland

Filmed and performed in Soidinsuo swamp, Finland, at 2009

A film by Masha Salangina Performers Osku Leinonen, Natalia Zhestovskaya, Grigory Glazunov, Reija Stenius, Saara Holmberg, Mirva Mattila Costumes and installations Merja Malkki

The idea to make the film Wetland was inspired by The Kalevala – epic poetry compiled by Elias Lönnrot from Finnish and Karelian oral folklore and mythology. It is regarded as the national saga of Finland.

My motivation to explore Kalevala was my great passion to learn and understand Finnish culture through myths and legends, in where the wisdom of ancestors is preserved. To know your future, you should learn your past – this is the ultimate goal of my work; to be here and now, to widen up the boundaries of experimental film genre and enrich the art of cinema.

A picture book Myths — stories within oneself

Myths — stories within oneself Author Osku Leinonen

Myths is a picture book of text and photographs that aims to capture the moment otherwise lost in the millions of minutes of speeding time.

It freezes what else would melt into the forgetfulness of all our yesterdays. Photos are from the butoh performance Myths and from ever-surprising nature.

Butoh arises from the subliminal myths of our dormant recollections. It is a moving record of the half-forgotten. Butoh is the living mirror of our shared lives.

Butoh dancers Masha Salangina and Osku Leinonen You can find the book Myths — stories within oneself for example from Amazon.co.uk

A thought
Art, in its most natural state, provides integrative experiences which are beyond good or bad, free of criticism or expectations to succeed, to do things the right way. This is Art of Integrity.
