The Finnish Museum of Photography: One Picture Manifesto
THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: ONE PICTURE MANIFESTO
13.9.–17.11.2019, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Project Space, Cable Factory
In One Picture Manifesto, photographers Marja Pirilä, Harri Pälviranta, Maija Annikki Savolainen and Maija Tammi challenge their own ways of creating art as well as photographic practices in general. In the exhibition, each artist presents one independent visual work of art that is not supported by long written descriptions or complementing works from the same artist. The aim is to invite the viewer to stop and look at one photo for a prolonged period of time.
The exhibition is a visual commentary on the practices of modern photographic art. One Picture Manifesto highlights the significance of a single photograph in a time that tends to celebrate serialism. The manifesto is also intended to encourage people to consider to what extent the form and even the very existence of photographic art is dictated by the parameters of photographic competitions, festivals and grant applications.
The manifesto and interviews with the artists are also displayed in the exhibition space.
