• Mia Makela

Residency period: May 2008

Live cinema event: 16 May 2008

Workshop: 17- 18 May 2008, Gallery Vžigalica, Ljubljana

During her MoTA residency in Ljubljana, Mia Makela presented four sets of her live cinema projects, which are described as “spectacular fantasy landscape” and “digital versions of poetry by William Blake.” SOLU introduced the audience to the less frequently visual element of live cinema – her videos are less abstract than usual: they were spectacular dream landscapes and intimate stories.
She also mentored a two-day intensive weekend workshop of basic live cinema tools and its history as part of Spring Festival. She was the first MoTA resident in Ljubljana.
Mia Makela (SOLU) is a Finnish media and live cinema artist, lecturer, researcher and cultural activist who works in Barcelona. Her path led her from the study of shamanism to art, from art to media art, from media art to the organization of events and workshops on contemporary digital culture.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
