Kaino Kim Vieno

Kaino Kim Vieno’s brooding pop songs are about the long shadows of histories, and what they do to our bodies. In her lyrics, the messy transition of former Soviet states from communism to capitalism is juxtaposed with the narrative of gender transitioning. Her sophomore album, ‘European Histories in E(strogen)’ came out on Minna Records in 2023.

Kaino Kim Vieno is performing in Mimerlaven as part of the showcase of World Canvas, a Helsinki-label and cross-disciplinary platform for unconfined expressions of emotion. World Canvas strives to provide a home for artists on the fringes and backlots of contemporary art. It is a blank surface, open to host audiovisual explorations, fictional fantasies and outcries of yearning.
