Opening: Friday, 26 June 2020, 6 – 8 pm, Saturday, 27 June 2020, 12 – 8 pm
Exhibition: 27 June – 5 September 2020 
Venue: Lindenstraße 34 – 35, 10969 Berlin 

Persons Projects | Helsinki School is proud to present our group exhibition The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being. This show will take place in both of our spaces Lindenstr. 34 and 35, and will be accompanied with our latest publication from the Helsinki School series volume 6 by Hatje Cantz.
This exhibition focuses on how these selected artists from the Helsinki School use their internal compass to intrinsically measure and guide their perspective in interpreting the landscape they live in. Historically, Nordic culture abides by the power generated by the changing of the four seasons. Each of these natural time periods either by its wrath or grace, notches its mark upon its passing, leaving a reminder in its wake of how fragile our human presence is within it.

Sanna Kannisto | Wanderer, Observer and Conveyor

Opening: 14 September 2018, 6–9 pm
15 September – 17 November 2018

Gallery Taik Persons is delighted to present Sanna Kannisto‘s second solo exhibition Wanderer, Observer and Conveyor as part of the European Month of Photography Berlin.

Sanna Kannisto works on the verge of experiences in nature. Sometimes that means windy weather on a rugged peninsula in Hanko, Finland, and at other times spending weeks in the rain forest on the other side of the Pacific. The force that urges her on is found in nature: birds, plants and landscapes. Sanna Kannisto has photographed animal, plant and landscape subjects over a couple of decades. She has developed her own methods of creating images, which are often titled taxonomically.
