I Call Them Glowsuckers is an exhibition by Minna-Kaisa Kallinen that lets the visitor experience the extraordinary encounter of a swimmer and an unknown sea creature. At first the swimmer is horrified, but soon also enchanted by her discovery. In a short period of time the creatures take over her daily life, as the endless curiosity brings her deeper and deeper into their world. 

I Call Them Glowsuckers is a meditation on the human-nature relationship, prejudices and fears as well as the urge to understand something foreign. Kallinen approaches these issues playfully, through every-day chores and thoughts. 

The forms of the art works vary from painted space to objects made of clay and fabric. The centerpiece is a 22 minute video work that shares its title with the exhibition. The projection starts every half an hour. 

Minna-Kaisa Kallinen is a multidisciplinary artist working mainly with fine arts, music and performative arts. Her practice is centered around writing, repetition, layering and reorganisation. Her works maintain a dialogue between the personal and the political. At present, she is especially interested in natural diversity and human incomprehesion of nature. She is a Master of Fine Arts and a self-educated musician.
