Biography

“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the Pink Twins”

Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha and Vesa Vehviläinen, based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals on all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.

Pink Twins’ videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Their computer-treated imagery focus on human perception, its functionality and limits. Pink Twins build a tissue of connections between their sound work and their visual work, attempting to intimately join mundane fragments usually disjoint. They work from fragments of images, sounds and sensations which our daily life is subjected to and break them down into small particles to reunite them once again in audacious chaotic constructions.

For their live performances Pink Twins incorporate live electronic music and a live mix of video works. The music of Pink Twins is based on improvised live sound processing of concrete and electronic sounds, noises and musical elements. The mix of live sound and video projections creates a hyperactive, constantly changing and extremely detailed experience of time and space.
