18 MAY

Jessica Ekomane | Concert



Jessica Ekomane

6 PM - 8 PM

Museum of Impossible Forms warmly welcomes electronic musician and sound artist Jessica Ekomane, presenting her first live performance in Helsinki. Ekomane creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience. Her quadraphonic performances, characterised by their physical affect, seek a cathartic effect through the interplay of psychoacoustics, the perception of rhythmic structures and the interchange of noise and melody. Her ever-changing and immersive sonic landscapes are grounded in questions such as the relationship between individual perception and collective dynamics or the investigation of listening expectations and their societal roots.

Her first LP Multivocal was released in 2019 via Important Records, stemming from a project for a sleeping event at Ars Electronica, curated by Shu-Lea Chang and Matthew Füller. Since then, her work has been extensively presented in festivals, venues, contemporary art spaces and museums across the world such as Hamburger Bahnhof,  Reina Sofia, Kanal Pompidou, Art Basel, Villa Massimo, CTM festival, Cafe OTO, Gedächtniskirch.

Ekomane was one of the composers chosen as collaborators by Natascha Sadr Haghigian for her installation Ankerzentrum at the German pavilion of the Venice Biennale 2019, alongside Maurice Louca, DJ Marfox, Jako Maron, Tisha Mukarji and Elnaz Seyedi. She was a fellow in residence for the villa Romana Prize 2023 in Florence.

The event is a collaboration between the Oulu Art Museum, HaiArt in Hailuoto and the Museum of Impossible Forms and is supported by the Finnish Institute in Germany.
