Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.

Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.

Impulses The London-based post-post-post-medium artist Simon Werner talks about his non-research based, barely existing practice that is solely driven by his own spontaneous impulses.   Savidivas Experimental electronics and noise by two brothers.    WHATEVER HAPPENED TO KURT STEINER? by Ola Ståhl & Neil Chapman
Drawing upon a wide array of sources and references ranging from concepts and notions extracted from the work of Deleuze and Guattari, to found photographs and stills from films, to images from sci-fi literature, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO KURT STEINER is a layering of recording and live presentation in two parts doubling and mirroring one another. Through various unlikely combinations of technology, live recording and superimposed playback, a limited set of themes and images are delivered with repetition and variation, exploring in the process a shifting sense of visuality achieved through synthesis of diverse means - text, performance, sound transmission, technology. This is the second part of a two-part performance, beginning Thursday at the Experimental Sound Duos show.   Pedalto Institution for Incorporated Art A high-ranking official of the Pedalto Institute will deliver a report on the recent activities of the Institute.
