Amorph!08 is a meeting point. Participating artists represent the wide field of experimental performative arts: performance art, dance, sound & music, video & web art. The theme is public spaces of Paris and Helsinki. The curator has chosen four Finnish and four French artists, and made four pairs of artists. They are Charlie Jeffery-Jouni Partanen, Carole Douillard-Essi Kausalainen, Viviana Moin-Mimosa Pale, Christophe Bruno-Pessi Parviainen. Each pair will get a public place - flea market, park, river or sea side - to work on. The Parisian places are located near to Mains d'Œuvres, Khiasma and La Générale des Sevres; in Helsinki the central place is Hietalahti. The results of the pairs' work - performance, installation, presentation, lecture - are shown during the festival weekend.
