LANDSKRONA FOTO VIEW: FINLAND

Showing at Landskrona Museum 29 June – 17 September 2017

In the last three summers, Landskrona Foto has presented the photography and photographers of another country. Previous years have seen exhibitions from Turkey, the Czech Republic and Ireland. This year it is Finland’s turn.

It is our privilege to have the opportunity to highlight Finnish photography and the Helsinki School in this fourth edition of the Landskrona Foto View-series, which also coincides with 100 years of Finnish independence.

The exhibition will consist of three separate sections.The first section will focus on leading international photographer Pentti Sammallahti and a selection of his former students, including Jorma Puranen, Joakim Eskildsen and Jyrki Parantainen. The second will be a solo presentation of Ulla Jokisalo, considered by many to be the Louise Bourgeois of the Nordic region. The last section of the show will concentrate on the youngest members of the Helsinki School, and how this generation uses the photographic process as a conceptual means to interpret ideas, from Fluxism to Land Art.

This presentation of Finnish photography will be curated by Timothy Persons and Hasse Persson, who have collaboratively worked throughout the Scandinavian area for the past 10 years. Timothy Persons is an internationally renowned curator and educator, and one of the architects behind the Helsinki School. Hasse Persson is a Swedish photographer and artist. He is currently the Artistic Director at Strandverket, Marstrand.

The Helsinki School is a unique educational platform that has evolved out of Aalto University over the past 20 years. It represents a method of teaching that prepares the students with the necessary skills to write, present, edit and execute their ideas at an international level. It’s an approach that combines collaborative thinking through mutual cooperation.

The exhibition is curated by Timothy Persons and Hasse Persson.

WHAT DO PHOTOGRAPHERS DO WITH THEIR PHOTOGRAPHS?

Storing framed photographs, after and between exhibitions, is often a problem for photographers, for reasons of space and security. Landskrona Foto offers photographers the chance to store exhibition pictures. One condition for this is that we judge that the exhibition pictures can be interesting to show in their entirety or in parts in Landskrona during the next five to seven years.

Storage is free of charge for the photographer, using a heated warehouse with a high security level. If parts of the stored exhibition are later shown in Landskrona, this can take place on condition that the photographer approves the context. Questions of payments are settled when the situation arises.
