Pimiö – Darkroom

e-inviteI will be showing ‘A Patchwork of Memories’ , a installation consisting of 36 cyanotypes that I did earlier this year during my residency at 3331 Arts Chiyoda in Tokyo, at the exhibition ‘Pimiö – Darkroom’ at the Finnish Museum of Photography. The exhibition is about the original miracle of photography and showcases work by darkroom masters from the museum’s archives as well as contemporary artists working with analogue techniques. I’m very excited to be part of the show. The private view is on Wednesday 19.8 from 6-8 pm and the exhibition is open until 31.1.2016, so there’s plenty of time to see it. Welcome!

ISSP 2015

For the past week I’ve been in Latvia participating in Takashi Homma’s Camera Obscura workshop organised by International Summer School of Photography. It’s been great fun, we’ve been playing around with a camera obscura and self-made pinhole cameras.
The results of our workshop – as well as the other ones – can be seen from tomorrow at Kuldiga Art House. The exhibition is open until 20th September. Tomorrow there’s also a special screening of the works in the outdoor cinema. Welcome!

NEVERMIND THE M*SS

Bild 6

After so many years away, I’m happy to show my work in Helsinki again. This week I have not one, but two, openings in my hometown. The first one is NEVERMIND THE M*SS in the new art space A Space. It’s a group exhibition with selected Finnish and international artists. The works presented at the show focuses on the mood and future of this new creative hub.

Building an interesting conversation between the selected works and mediums from young artists with different background, this exhibition celebrates zooming in and out on sometimes risqué amusement fused with everyday seriousness and moods, brought back into new light by the minds of these up and coming artists.

The exhibition is open until 5th June and the other participating artists are Emilia Kannosto, Hanna Perälä, Isabella Chydenius, Vanessa Forstén, Manuel Donada, Kobus la Grange & David Brits. The opening reception is on Thursday, from 7-9 pm at Albertinkatu 12. More about the event here. Hope to see you there!
