Jyrki Parantainen | Poetic Realities

Jyrki Parantainen | Poetic Realities

Exhibition: 14 March – 25 June 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."

Persons Projects welcomes you to join us 23 and 24 May 2020 for the opening of A Kiss Given by Time to Light, a group exhibition featuring Timo Kelaranta, Niko Luoma, Pertti Kekarainen, Niina Vatanen and Kira Leskinen. 

It’s a tribute to Timo Kelaranta’s influence as a mentor, teacher and artist in how his experimentations with abstraction has inspired one generation after another from the Helsinki School. This exhibition reflects upon how all these artists use the photographic process as a means to exercise their own sense for essentiality in defining how they collect time through multiple exposures inspired by sound, space, color and light. Looking back over the past thirty years, Timo Kelaranta must now be considered one of the first photographic pioneers in the Nordic region to explore the numerous possibilities of abstraction as a voice in visual poetry.
