FixC PRESENTS: FIXATION
Anthology hosts the Helsinki-based cooperative FixC for several programs of experimental films and videos.
In psychology ‘fixation’ means the state wherein the individual develops obsessions in relation to some body or some thing. It can also mean gestures like maintaining one’s gaze in a constant direction, repetition, and /or rituals. The “Fixation” screening is a brief journey through the diverse worlds of the moving image.
FixC is an independent artists cooperative, which was launched to generate, distribute, and promote video art, media art, and experimental cinema, and to produce curated touring exhibitions and screenings. For more info, please visit: www.fixc.fi

‘Eestaas’ means back and forth in Finnish. Shot on 16mm, the film is intended to be projected forwards and then backwards. This work combines experimental film with electro-acoustic music. Together, they form a comprehensive experience which adds up to more than the sum of its parts. The music is produced by Samuli ‘Teho’ Majamäki, and the other musicians appearing alongside him are Ilpo Väisänen (Pan sonic), Tapani Rinne, and Verneri Lumi (Rinneradio).
