In this masterclass, Pilvi Takala gives us an insight into the artistic process and research that informs her work. Pilvi’s video works are based on performative interventions in which she researches specific communities in order to process social structures and question the normative rules and truths of our behaviour in different contexts. Her works show that it is often possible to learn about the implicit rules of a social situation simply through its disruption.

Pilvi’s video installation Close Watch (on display at FACT from 1 March - 2 June) was originally commissioned for the Finnish Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale.

This masterclass takes place in The Box on the Ground Floor. Join us in Studio/Lab afterwards for a tour of the space, refreshments and informal discussion.

It's important to us that everybody feels they are able to access our programme. If you would like to attend the masterclass but are unable to pay the admission fee, email us at
