A claim of pretences

You are
You wait on the worlds
        of the mind
The lightning asserting their
        nerve, their feeling heart
A crushed claim cried
You do not hear their
        darkness, their august,
                their repose

Like a couple
Like a fact
Like a pretence
Like a centre
Like a flush

Cia Rinne: archives zaroum på Afsnit P

Afsnit P proudly presents archives zaroum – a new digital work by the Finland-Swedish poet and artist Cia Rinne. archives zaroum is an archive consisting of 29 animated and interactive visual poems. The project is a reworking of Rinne’s collection of visual and concrete poetry zaroum, published in 2001.

Cia Rinne, born in Gothenburg in Sweden 1973, grew up in West Germany, and lived in her parents' native Finland for 13 years before moving to Denmark in 2007. She holds a MA degree in philosophy. Cia Rinne writes visual poetry and conceptual pieces, using simple drawings and different languages, and at times incorporating the pieces into installation works with found objects, as in the installation Indices – first shown in an old synagogue in Romania in 2003.

Besides her poetic work, Cia Rinne has been working on documentary projects together with the Danish photographer Joakim Eskildsen. Rinne and Eskildsen's latest collaboration documents the life and situation of Roma in seven different countries, between India and Finland. The project has included longer stays with the Roma, and has been presented in the books The Roma Journeys and Die Romareisen (Steidl Publishers 2007). Until February 10, Nikolaj – Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, presents an exhibition of Joakim Eskildsen's photographs from the project.

archives zaroum is the third part of a Nordic trilogy of contemporary visual poetry, Ord i øjet (Words in the Eye) on the Afsnit P website. The series is curated by Christian Yde Frostholm and Karen Wagner and is supported by The Nordic Culture Fund, Fondet for Dansk-Svensk Samarbejde, and Kulturfonden for Danmark og Finland.

the dirty old teddy bear takes whomever it wants

The one and only Maailman Paskin Nalle (or Dirty Old Teddy Bear, as they a bit euphemistically have translated the name), a notorious Helsinki-based rock band of which first drummer I had a great honour to be, back when the world was still innocent, has now a MySpace profile page. Go check it out. Especially the newest piece, "Why don't we do it on the boat", is an echt dirty song, that's for sure.
