Description WDMSNLCA is a small-scale salon performance. The luxurious
pillows of its sofas reflect the essence and position of
contemporary art in a culture where art and commerce are
locked in a constant embrace. The performance soothes and
caresses the senses using movement, singing and chattering,
while also giving surprising insights to those who usually
feel intimidated by contemporary art. And the best thing is:
they are guaranteed to feel even more intimidated after
experiencing this.

Based on careless imitation of aesthetic concepts, WDMSNLCA
wonders what (contemporary) art is, is there a quality
criteria to it, and if there is, who owns that criteria? And
what kind of art is permitted to have a price tag on it?

Liisa Pentti and Riikka Theresa Innanen look for answers to
these very topical yet eternal questions by using such
methods as denying gravity and kinaesthetic empathy. Is
there still a possibility of art, or life, after our dreams
have been branded?
