THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: MARJA HELANDER, HARRI PÄLVIRANTA & KARI SOINIO - INHERITED IDEALS
5.12.2018–24.2.2019, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Cable Factory
Marja Helander, Harri Pälviranta and Kari Soinio are three long-time photographic artists. Each of the three artists has, during their careers, appeared in their own works, thus personally functioning as material for their art. With their own bodies as the subject of their photography, the artists have dealt with both social and quite private themes. Age and years have also introduced mercy and “gentle depictions of life” into the works of the critically-minded artists.
The exhibition Inherited Ideals delves into the values and norms upheld and promoted by the media, modern society and our own spiritual heritage. Each artist examines the ideals that guide us from their own point of view, in addition to confronting the challenges related to dismantling the tacit rules: can we do anything to the forces that define us? And what are the things that we are completely blind to in our own environment?
The exhibition has emerged as a result of a collective process between the artists, and most of the works are being exhibited for the first time.
