Human Flesh is an experimental short film. Despite its analytical edge and unconventional structure it is a rather humorous account on the capacity signs have to express meaning. The film aims to expose the complexities language, images, sounds and gestures pose in our attempt to express or represent pretty much anything... be it an emotion, a thought or even a simple form.
Jani Ruscica is an artist-filmmaker born in 1978 in Savonlinna, Finland and raised in Italy, but currently he lives and works in Helsinki. Using a variety of mediums – film, wood cut, sound, performance and sculpture – his practice investigates the ties between interpretation and representation, collapsing boundaries of matter, language and meaning. His works have been exhibited at e.g. Camden Art Centre and Animate Projects, MoMA PS1, the Pompidou and Kiasma.
