The Ibero-American Institute of Finland, in conjunction with the four Nordic embassies (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) present a video art show that spirits the viewer away to a world that is simultaneously strange and familiar. Four young Nordic artists show four works of video art related to issues like the occult, dreamlike visions and illusions.
