Anxiety / Relief is an art exhibition by the Animation Crank Handle collective. The exhibition consists of ten works by ten well-known Finnish animation artists. Artists represented are Jan Andersson (born 1973), Maria Björklund (1970), Tommi Juutilainen (1972), Ami Lindholm (1982), Reetta Neittaanmäki (1974), Kaisa Penttilä (1975), Aiju Salminen (1979), Kristian Simolin (1974), Mark Ståhle (1971) and Niina Suominen (1973). Their works have been seen on many festivals around the world.
The exhibition aims to bridge the gap between animation and fine arts. Works include an interactive painting (Shoo!), a cross stiched, interactive animation, where the motion is created through the viewers own motion (Rushed Through) and a Lilliput, trapped in a small stereoscopic box. The versatile exhibition presents also a short film of a mannequin spending a weekend on the countryside, one of a jogging Herman Göring as well as five other works.
