Jorma Puranen | Icy Prospects

Opening: 06 September 2019, 6-9 pm
Exhibition: 07 September – 22 November 2019

'The Arctic is often associated with an idea of immensity, infinity and distance that is an invitation to discover Otherness and Elsewhere. It likewise becomes an instrument for the cultural definition of self. "Icy Prospects” is associated with new concepts of space, mobility and distance that have emerged in cultural studies. I was interested in the possibility of a cultural space created by different fates, places, histories and encounters, a fictive historical world. "Icy Prospects” is a kind of fabric of facts, fantasy, geographical imagination and intellectual landscapes.’
