Turppi Group / Turppi Games 82-83 / EMMA 15.6.-4.9.2016 Earth Contacts Trailer / This summer EMMA exhibits the Finnish Turppi Group (1982–1983) and their ground-breaking work in the field of video art. Stemming from an intrigue in rituals and ritualistic spaces, the activities of the Turppi Group in their own right paved the way for Finnish contemporary art. The first ever piece of Finnish performance art video is shown as part of the exhibition. The Turppi Group realised several land artworks during the Lehtimäki symposioum 1982,of which the environmental performance art video Earth Contacts, marked the first time the Turppi Group used a video camera to record their work.
