For Helsinki Biennial 2023, Keiken extend their project Morphogenic Angels, with a new multimodal installation which acts as a portal to access a speculative world beyond direct experience.

Inspired by visiting a magical spirit house in Thailand, the portal provides three different encounters: a sound work scattered along the Lime Valley, a house made for angels and spirits on the Isthmus connection Vallisaari and Kuninkaansaari, as well as an online interactive experience. A version of the game is also available in the gallery space at the Cultural Centre Stoa.

Keiken is an artist collective co-founded in 2015 by Tanya Cruz, Hana Omori and Isabel Ramos, who are based between London and Berlin. 

Keiken’s collective title is taken from the Japanese word for ‘experience’, lived experience being an idea at the core of their practice. Keiken creates speculative worlds through filmmaking, gaming, installation, Extended Reality (XR), blockchain and performance. 

The artwork is co-commissioned with KANAL-Centre Pompidou, Brussels, and supported by Saastamoinen Foundation.
