Sleep Paralysis exhibition at Myymälä2 until 12th of November.

Sleep Paralysis exhibition in Myymälä2 Gallery until 12th of November, 2017.



“Sleep Paralysis” is a series of works realised by media and sound artists Tuukka Haapakorpi, Jukka Hautamäki and Joonas Siren, taking the phenomenon of sleep paralysis as a starting point. The artists have recently graduated recently from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.

Sleep paralysis is a condition where the mind is awake but the body is not. The experience is described as an oppressive feeling and a distortion of space. Often a strange entity is perceived occupying the space. Thinking is possible but action is not. The exhibition is based on sleep paralysis as an allegory to a dysfunctional political subjectivity, fueled by a paralysis of discourse.

Consisting of a series of spatial experimentations and abstraction as an instrument of substance, the artist group aims to produce a landscape governed by an immobility of language,
