The Finnish Museum of Photography: Out of Sight
THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: OUT OF SIGHT - PICTURING THE UNSEEN
12.6.–1.9.2019, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Cable Factory
Out of Sight: Picturing the Unseen highlights new work by four emerging interdisciplinary artists who question and explore the fraught relationship between visibility and the construction of “Otherness.” The exhibition asks who is unseen, particularly in the West, and considers how difference is confronted through forms of visual representation. It approaches the unseen as a process—an “unseeing”—in which certain groups of people are systematically erased, ignored, removed, and reimagined according to the needs of a dominant culture.
In their photographic and video works, Cihad Caner, Róisín White, Sinead Kennedy and Agata Wieczorek examine how visibility is continually negotiated through discourse, folklore, governmental policies, and the production and consumption of goods.
