In 2021 Oulu Music Video Festival explores the concept of embarrassment and how the cycles of cool vs embarrassing synchronise with the cycles of fashion. In the end, is ultimate coolness just doing the most embarrassing things with no shame?
OMVF’s art exhibition is a continuation of these same themes but delves deeper into the concept of embarrassment and the feelings of shame inherently linked to it. How do destructive and oppressive feelings of shame differ from shame that acts as our compass? Look forward to embarrassing aesthetics, break downs, sensitive moments and over sharing.
Can one accept the inherent embarrassment of being human and let go of shame? Embrace the shame, NOLO 4 lyf€!
