Ragna Róbertsdóttir | Configured Landscapes

Opening: 22 November 2019, 6 – 9 pm
Exhibition: 23 November 2019 – 29 February 2020 

Persons Projects proudly presents Ragna Róbertsdóttir’s first solo exhibition Configured Landscapes. This collection of works, from the 1980’s to the present, reveals the diversity as well as the tactile sensitivity that Róbertsdóttir has continuously exhibited throughout her illustrious career. Her minimalistic roots reach back to the early 1980’s, beginning with her earliest experimentations with textiles and organic materials that were inherently common within her Icelandic environment. Róbertsdóttir’s approaches her work methodically, leaving each element used, enough space to define its own presence of being.

Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information. – Man Ray

This simple quote by  best describes how Timo Kelaranta approaches his chosen subjects. Whether it be in prose, poems or photographs, Kelaranta exercises his own sense of essentiality in how he defines one moment in time. Think of his photographs as words within his own visual poem. This group of images has been selected from the most recent body of works Numeritos as conduits for reflection. The raw materials he so delicately uses to draw out his images from silk thread to colored paper become portals for contemplation. More importantly, he defines a new voice in visual poetry that can be best described as compositions in space.

Opening: 13 March 2020, 6 – 9 pm
Exhibition: 14 March – 25 April 2020
Venue: Lindenstraße 35, 10969 Berlin

Persons Projects proudly presents a collection of Jyrki Parantainen’s photographs which focus on his fascination with poetic realities. These selected works reflect his interest in how we define what a landscape is. Parantainen states "it’s much more than just a sum of shapes, colors, and light. It’s the universe with all it’s manifestations: grief, longing, dreams, beauty, world politics, environmental disasters, and violence. It’s about the past, the present and the future.
