We at Persons Projects feel privileged to have the opportunity to introduce you to the edition box "MAA” by Jyrki Parantainen. First hand produced and signed in 1991, we feel compelled to rerelease the remaining editions to commemorate the exhibition Poetic Realities (up until the 25 June 2020).
This series consists of 11 photographic images from Parantainen’s Earth-Series (1981-1991) and reveals his earliest interventions into the Finnish landscape in a highly individual way.
These images reflect Parantainen’s unique process of working from his choice of sites to the laborious effort to integrate other materials into the works. His visceral combinations of different physical elements such as dry ice and ignited gasoline, create a surreal visual experience. He also used various organic materials from milk to chalk stone, ice and fire lit torches to transform his selected environments. Parantainen created these personal landscapes for the sole purpose of photographically capturing that one specific moment when these various elements merge together to form a Land Art experience.
Persons Projects is thrilled to announce the participation at ARCO Madrid 2020.
