Elina Brotherus: Drummer 1-3 (2017; duration 8:17 min)
Drummer 1-3 is a series of videos in which Elina Brotherus repeats various exercises in front of the camera based on an event score, as used by the Fluxus movement. Drummer 1-3 is part of the Regle du jeu series, which Brotherus created together with choreographer Vera Nevanlinna. The playful performances deliberately stir up the seriousness of art. The short drum performance is performed by Nevanlinna.
Elina Brotherus (b. 1972) lives and works in Finland and France. Her photographs and videos explore subjective experiences, the presence and absence of love, and issues related to form. Her recent works focus on the relationship between the human subject and the landscape, as well as the artist’s observation of the model. Her series Regle du jeu was awarded the Carte blanche PMU photography competition in France in 2017, after which she had a solo exhibition at the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
