The Finnish Museum of Photography: Belonging to the story
THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: BELONGING TO THE STORY
12.6.–1.9.2019, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Cable Factory
The Belonging to the Story exhibition hovers between reality and fiction and uses the techniques of contemporary photographic art to examine the way in which we cling to one another and the world, dream, create utopias, and imagine the future. The exhibition also explores the photographer's role as the producer of meanings and ideas and the camera's task as the recorder of light and “reality.” At the same time, it aims to give the viewer space to delve into their own imagination and thus continue the story.
The artists: Alejandra Carles-Tolra, Pablo Lerma, Stratos Maragos, Alessia Rollo, Maija Savolainen, Peo Olsson and Johan Willner.
The artists were chosen from 31 Transeurope projects by a group of curators from the Finnish Museum of Photography Clément Beraud, Reetta Haarajoki and Tiina Rauhala.
