She tries not to be only the person behind the camera but also to actively take part in the process of the picture making, to be present. This presence she also searches within the persons she takes pictures of.

Mikko Sinervo & Ea Vasko - Drawn by Light

The photographic emulsion, plate or paper - is an unknown quantity, whereupon one can note with light, as the painter can with his implements. -L. Moholy-Nagy, 1928

The pioneer of the abstract colour photograms had been already occupied by the same questions, which also distinguish the works of Mikko Sinervo and Ea Vasko: Light, colour and space. Different to Moholy-Nagy, these artists approach from the representational, transferring it into a borderland to abstraction.

Hannu Karjalainen: Young Artist of the Year 2009

The Gallery TaiK is proud to present the exhibition of Hannu Karjalainen, who has been chosen as the artist of the year 2009 in Finland. In the exhibition will be presented Karjalainen´s latest video installation Blackpool Pleasure Beach and large format portraits. Unlike a portrait photographer in a classical sense, Karjalainen is not interested in giving insight into the mind of the people he photographs. Rather he examines the relationship between painted and photographed portrait while steeping the clothes of the portrayed into paint and from then on fixing them on photographic paper.

Ola Kolehmainen at KIASMA

Ola Kolehmainen is having a solo display A BUILDING IS NOT A BUILDING at Kiasma in Helsinki.
Architecture is the subject matter of Kolehmainen´s art. Instead of merely documenting it, he crops and brings forth interesting and surprising details. The name of the exhibition implies that in Kolehmainen´s photographs a building is not primarily a building but a fabric of colour, light, shapes, surfaces and depth, repetition and composition, an expedition to the image. Later in the year, the exhibition will travel to Denmark and England.

Duration: 26 February - 26 April, 2009
Venue: KIASMA, Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma
