Ilppo Pohjola is a versatile artist whose films, videos and multimedia installations have been awarded and distributed internationally.
Pohjola works with the vocabulary of film, examining its structural and social elements in order to create a body of work that pushes the limits of the medium’s physical possibilities. He works between the narrative tropes of Hollywood and the deconstructive methodologies of independent film. Given his interest in the formal elements of filmmaking, the content of Pohjola’s works are surprisingly physical and sensual, even if assaultive.
