Press text: New Nordic Photography 2012 presents a multifaceted picture of the field of contemporary photography in the Nordic region. Presented once more is the socially orientated documentary tradition that dominated last year’s exhibition, but this time nuanced to a higher degree by works that deal with photography’s role in science, theoretical reflections on the essence of photography itself and staged photography.

The selection of the participating artists was based on their works. The exhibition is centered around the coveted Victor fellowships. Two participants will be offered the opportunity of further studies and a studio residency in countries outside the Nordic region: Glasgow School of Art or the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham and the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York.

Do the Stars Look the Same on the Other Side of the World?

Mikko Sinervo writes about the exhibition "As a child I often looked at the stars. Against the dark there were all those bright spots blinking. As the minutes passed by more stars became visible, some smaller, some larger. I was overwhelmed by the simplicity of that beauty. But I still have the same question in my head. Do the stars look the same on the other side of the world?"

Sanna Kannisto – Close Observer

Gallery TAIK is delighted to present Helsinki School artist Sanna Kannisto with her solo exhibition Close Observer in Berlin.

Having always been interested in biology, natural history and the question of how science is trying to explain the world, Sanna Kannisto adopts methodological elements of scientific research to question its concept of how nature is approached. She amplifies her query by visually trespassing traditional portraiture of nature that usually depicts its objects isolated on white background. Through her concept of crossing both disciplines – science and art – Sanna Kannisto evolves a perspective that alerts to human’s sight of nature and its complexity.

In relation to Kannisto´s first major monograph Fieldwork, published 2011 by Aperture, the exhibition gives a broad overview of her oeuvre. Selected works from her series Close Observer (2008–2010) and Field Studios (2000–2010) are presented, including many of Kannisto´s most recent photographs. In addition, works from her series Act of Flying (2006), as well as Private Collection (2003–2006) are included.

Wilma Hurskainen – The Woman Who Married a Horse

You are cordially invited to the opening of Helsinki School artist Wilma Hurskainen’s solo exhibition at Gallery Kluuvi in Helsinki on Thursday, April 19 at 5–7pm, when Hurskainen's second monograph Heiress, published by Kerber Verlag, also will be released.

The Woman Who Married a Horse is a story about our longing to control something stronger than ourselves, told in the form of photographs and video. The young women so prevalent in Wilma Hurskainen’s photographic art are now sharing their twisted realities with horses.

In art horse is a symbol that does not seem to wear out with time; it rather seems to defy definitions. In her images Hurskainen borrows horse stories from girls´ books and folklore. The entity tells about the ability of the photograph to operate with shards of our visual world and still create something surpassing the commonplace, something dream-like.

Timo Kelaranta – Strange Love

This spring’s major exhibition at the Finnish Museum of Photography focuses on the Helsinki School artist Timo Kelaranta’s (b. 1951) long involvement with photography. As a photographer Kelaranta is a poet, a master of the abstract image and of minimalism, for whom the most important thing in a picture is its form. The content of the picture is also generated by the form. The light moulds the surface, scale and space of the objects into something that was not there before. The material appears immaterial. The pictures also include words: the titles are essential parts of the works.

The exhibition contains works spanning Kelaranta´s entire career, plus totally new, recently completed photographs. To counterbalance the abstract images, also on display are a small number of portraits of his friends and family. Kelaranta is not showing his production in chronological order, or even arranged into distinct themes, rather the relative order of the works is determined by visual considerations. The moment of looking is more important than the moment of photographing.
