Aistikkaat (Sensuous) – Video and Photography Exhibition
Date and time6 – 29.10.2021
Sensuality has no upper age limit. Sensuous is an art project where a group of people over sixty explored their own sensuality via burlesque, drag and improvisation in workshops.
Workshops were led by Jaana Pirskanen aka Theodora Rex / Magnus Love in Helsinki and in London.
Twelve charming characters were born and they created their own performances. Vilma Rimpelä photographed the characters at different public and private locations.
The Sensuous project celebrates sexuality and beauty of people who are over sixty years old. It is about age positivity, body positivity and sex positivity, showing older people as thinking, desiring and desirable subjects. In the sensuous project, it has been important not to define sensuality, sexuality, gender or aesthetics for the participants, but to respect their own definitions of themselves.
Working group: artistic director Jaana Pirskanen, producer Marleena Haapaniemi, photographer Vilma Rimpelä
