The Finnish Museum of Photography: fin.land.
THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: FIN.LAND.
23.8.-18.11.2018, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Cable Factory
The Photobooks from Finland association has conceived an exhibition and a photobook, both based on doing things collectively. Eight artists were selected for the project in the spring of 2018. The thematic starting point was the Finnish landscape.
There are several synonyms for landscape, including scenery and view. Landscape can be taken to mean viewing something from a certain angle. It always appears different depending on the direction of viewing. It is never objective, but always dependent on the viewer. The works in the exhibition explore, for example, memories, nature, belonging to a place, and our view of landscape. The featured works also deal with, for example, information and identity, the need to be seen, and the maintenance of control and order.
Artists: Sara Hornig, Simo Karisalo, Karl Ketamo, Laura Konttinen, Sebastian Reis, Kukka-Maria Rosenlund, Aura Saarikoski and Emma Sarpaniemi
