Jyrki Parantainen | Poetic Realities

Opening: 13 March 2020, 6 – 9 pm
Exhibition: 14 March – 25 April 2020

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. The landscape is a canvas permanently open to interpretation”. These works form a collection of perspectives, where words intermingle with each other or rest alone upon the image, usher in new meanings in how we identify, observe or experience a landscape within his conceptual context.
