Grounded– Pulsating is an exhibition of new, experimental mixed-media work inspired by a mini-FM radio station. During the winter of 2023-2024, Ruusuvuori ran a radio station from her studio at the Fine Arts Work Center. The station was open for the community, functioning in a random and spontaneous manner, aiming to accommodate the signals from the collective and the act of falling between frequencies. Grounded-– Pulsating presents these signals, translated into prints, homemade radio receivers, video, and a love letter to (radio) uncertainty.

Please note: The gallery is available to visit from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Please visit the administrative offices to be shown to the gallery.

About the Artist

Tinja Ruusuvuori is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker with a focus on subjective and creative documentary-making. She is interested in choosing charged objects, images, and gestures that obey some mysterious order—and cultivating rather than eradicating that sense of mystery. Through her careful investigation of everyday phenomena, it emerges that these stand as metaphors for wider questions about how and why we live together. With tenderness and humor, she seeks in her work to question a forward trajectory. This often involves an invitation to others to coauthor and collaborate. Ruusuvuori holds an MLitt in Fine Art Practice from the Glasgow School of Art and a BA in documentary film directing from Aalto University, Helsinki. She has participated in residencies at the Cité International des Arts Paris and at the Fine Arts Work Center, while her work has been shown at international film festivals, including Visions du Réel, Toronto Hot Docs, Camden International Film Festival, and London Short Film Festival. In 2019, Ruusuvuori received the Uusi Aalto Award for new talent in Finnish cinema. She lives and works in Tampere, Finland. Ruusuvuori is a returning Fellow from 2022-2023.
