Baltic Circle 2022 ends with a happening in RTI-talo that fills the old office building with audiovisual performances, installations and music curated by Fridaymilk.


Fridaymilk is an independent art collective from above the Polar Circle. Founded in 2012 and united by Northern identity, the group of Murmansk-based curators, producers and artists are promoting the concept of cultural decentralisation by shifting the cultural centres from traditional “capitals” to remote areas. Fridaymilk is an open reflection by the artists and curators about life in the High North. The constant search for a meaning and inspiration to stay and grow in this area. Fridaymilk develops projects in the sphere of culture, works as a residency for artists from all over the world, and promotes alternative forms of documentation. At the moment the group works in exile.

live audiovisual performance (50 min)
by Sergey Kostyrko & 1999Q

Nolanders project reflects on the presumable future of the Russian northern monotowns, based on its unique formation story behind. The audiovisual performance is assembled in real time using audio and video field recordings, as well as improvisational sound synthesis and video processing techniques. It is a mesmerizing cinematic experience that takes the viewer on a hypnotic journey into the pre-human era, through the rumbling industrial heritage to the illusive future of the northern territories.

Sergey Kostyrko is an associate professor at St. Petersburg State University, sound artist, mathematician. His research area covers the different aspects of mechanics and thermodynamics of thin film materials. In recent years, Kostyrko is also active as a sound artist with a focus on science and bio art projects as well as a musician working in the field of improvisational and noise music.

1999Q, filmmaker, visual artist (RU)

1999Q is a visual artist and experimental filmmaker based in Murmansk. Using various shooting techniques, the artist immerses the viewer in a meditative, unhurried flow of life in the North.
