Two men wearing black suits and ties are hiking in the middle of Finland’s best-known national landscape. They are Harri Piispanen and Aleksi Jaakkola, Kansallisromantikot – the National Romantics. The two artists carry out according to their own definition performative explorations. It is a method based on hiking in the landscape, seamlessly combining performance with artistic research.
Now they have been to Koli. As a part of the performative exploration the music video Mii Mii was made based on a pure word association. In the video the National Romantics dance – or, at least attempt to dance – to the music with the prestigious landscape as a backdrop.
