Artist Martina Miño Pérez and poet Roxana Crisólogo Correa welcome visitors to interact with an installation, to reflect upon lines, landscapes, cartography and the imagined territories of Latin America through the action of drawing, erasing and appropriating.

Through the use of visual poetry and collage, we can all connect with the collective
memory of a continent and with an identity that is still being shaped.

Poetry and texts of Roxana Crisólogo, Martina Miño, Rosamaría Bolom and Lalo Barrubia. Translations into English and Finnish by Anne Ketola.

Peruvian poet Roxana Crisólogo Correa (b. 1966) lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. She is the author of poetry and founder of the Multilingual Literature project Sivuvalo. Crisólogo’s poetry presents power relations in everyday life in the post capitalist era. She rewrites general stories by including traditionally silenced voices to decolonize poetry in order to construct new epic with new heroes.

Ecuadorian Martina Miño Pérez (b. 1990) is a multidisciplinary artist, living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She is member of the collective Third Space. Martina’s works appear as dreamlike compositions, texts and images, in which meanings shift and the realm of reality is absorbed by fiction. Her work has been exhibited and published in Finland and in Latin America.

Suomeksi:

Runoilija Roxana Crisólogo Correa ja taiteilija Martina Miño Pérez kutsuvat festivaaliyleisön osallistumaan installaatioon, jossa vierailijat pääsevät pohtimaan Latinalaisen Amerikan rajoja ja kuviteltuja alueita itse piirtämällä ja pois pyyhkimällä. Visuaaliset runot ja kollaasit kietovat teoksen osaksi kollektiivista muistia ja maanosan yhä muotoutuvaa identiteettiä.

Reading Through Light (RTL) – valokuvan kautta lukemiseen

Screen Shot 2016-05-14 at 14.07.14This project is an attempt to combine literature and photography trough post-card creation, using the intersection between two disciplines to promote the readability of multilingual literature made in Finland. Using the poems of transcultural writers Finland-based, the photos will represent a contribution, an explanation or an interpretation of the texts itself.
Project coordination: Diana Rosy Ricárdez López (Sivuvalo’s Intern | UV)

Universidad Veracruzna - Sivuvalo

We are happy to announce the arrival of Mexican students Amado Peña and Diana R. Ricárdez, who will be doing a research internship with us about promotional reading processes and new media during April. This is the first step in a series of international collaborations, showing that it is possible to find different ways to share and expand independent projects involving the work and views of transcultural poets, writers and artists around the world.

Special thanks to Dr. Olivia Jarvio from Universidad Veracruzana (University of Veracruz, Mexico).

Design: Daniel Malpica | Photography: Jaime Culebro

AFO PUB LogoAFO PUB was a series of multilingual poetry interventions and aphorism workshops in eastern Helsinki bars developed in collaboration between Sivuvalo, Stoa, Humak University of Applied Science and Helsinki Poetry Connection.

Poets: Roxana Crisólogo, Kasper Salonen (host) and Daniel Malpica
Musician: Sergio Castrillón (cello)
Aphorism Workshop: Antti Pelttari

Places: Mopo Baari (Kontula), Aapelin Baari (Kontula), Ruiskumestari (Rouhuvuori) and Idän Piste (Itakeskus).

The four nights were an excellent experience even tho no all were completely successful. We learned a lot about this places, the people that visit them, and how they are totally different depending each location, atmosphere and circumstances. This interventions gave us a better perspective of how to handle cultural projects in public places. People were fascinated with the idea of been involved in an interactive experience hearing and participating. Definitely a project that we have to continue in the future.

Special thanks to Petra Hannus, for your great work during this process.

The City Ghettos of Today in Helsinki | 2014

logo_city_ghettos_color_cmykSivuvalo in The City Ghettos of Today – Helsinki program of September 8th-20th 2014.

DOWNLOAD THE GHETTOS PROJECT BOOK

The City Ghettos of Today – Helsinki focuses on knowledge, practices and skills that become isolated, when people move to Finland from other countries. In Helsinki, the limits between groups of people are not physical, nor as notably spatial as in some other cities. The ghettoization, if it exists, is a process of searching for a group among which it is possible to share the wisdom and values that are not recognized elsewhere in the society. These invisible “ghettos” are thus also sources of unknown skills and hidden knowledge. 

Authors Yousif Abu Al-Fawz, Tanya TynjäläDaniel Malpica, Polina Kopylova, Yesmith Sanchez and Roxana Crisólogo shared feelings and experiences related to the concept of ghetto.  Some of these authors also took part in the construction of the Tubes instalation and final performative intervention.
