Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform 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/at Ptarmigan during these years.

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.
