Burn at Turko Art Museum, Finland

5 February – 20 March 2016

Turko Art Museum presents Burn a film made by Patrick Jolley and Reynold Reynolds in 2002.

In the collaboration Burn, a film by Jolley and Reynolds, a burning room is chosen as the frame for their third film. The protagonists treat the fire as a mild annoyance, indifferent to the disaster that is engulfing them. The film is comic in a world-weary, Beckett-like way. It is also strangely engrossing—in the burning interior survival seems incidental, the characters accepting as much as unaware. There is no sense of panic or shock, but rather a humorous, wry understanding of the refusal to see the unpalatable truths of the human condition.
