Today! We are opening our new group exhibition "Notes from a Seamstress' Daughter" at Persons Projects and cordially invite you to join us today, on Friday, 11 March, from 6 – 8 pm.

The exhibition will run from 11 March to 23 April 2022.

The show presents a unique selection of female artists – Zofia Kulik, Anni Leppälä, Ragna Róbertsdottir, and Niina Vatanen – who share a common ground within their artistic practices as they all incorporate and draw from their own personal histories. Their work and overall creative development were influenced by a female presence that played a significant role in their upbringing. Under this aspect, this group exhibition intends to explore four different female perspectives and how they are joined together through the process of objectifying their own fears and doubts in their search for their own identity. Their artistic arsenal ranges from threads and pins to textile ornaments and patterns. Regardless of the materials used, the works collected in this exhibition reflect a tactile sensibility in the way the artists apply them.

Last day of Karl Ketamo's Solo Exhibition

Today is the last day of Karl Ketamo's solo exhibition "Among Other Things”. Don't miss the chance if you haven't seen the show yet! We welcome you at our gallery at Lindenstraße 34 from 11 am - 6 pm. Looking forward to seeing you there!

This has been Ketamo's first solo exhibition, presenting his photographic works from his series "Landscapes of Authority" (2016). By using images commonly printed on the pages of passports, Ketamo not only explores the more unusual forms of representing landscape, but questions the meaning of national identity, as well as the authority that is issued to the passports owner. The project sets itself against the events of 2014-2015, later to be labelled as the ‘European migration crisis’. The selected images highlight nations benefitting from freedom of movement that is denied to others even in a deep humanitarian crisis.

We are very happy to share the latest review of Zofia Kulik's book, "Zofia Kulik: Methodology, My Love", by Joanna Turowicz at “Woman’s Art Journal”.

"This contemporary context is also stressed by Murawski, who, however, speaking from the position of an anthropologist of Warsaw’s architecture and urban spaces, notices a potential of revolt and resistance in the marching and disciplined human masses shown in Kulik’s works. At the time of Poland’s ongoing Women’s Strike (Ogólnopolski Strajk Kobiet or OSK) and recurring mass street protests fomented by the introduction of radically strict anti-abortion laws in October last year at the height of the pandemic crisis, these interpretations and Kulik’s works themselves gain a pressing topical urgency."

29/12/2021

We are pleased to inform you that Ragna Róbertsdóttir’s work “Landscape for Donald Judd” (2007) is currently on view at Cloud Seven in Brussels, where it is exhibited as part of the Frédéric de Goldschmidt Collection.

In a room next to works by Herman de Vries and Gareth Moore, these pieces speak of the artists’ memories and address them through elements collected while traveling, often remaining unaltered. It is a question of restituting the world through samples, maps, the earth, and collected objects. This poetical dimension also reflects an attentiveness to the environment and its small details that inspire both the artist and the collector.

Cloud Seven
Open Wed – Fri, 3 – 7 pm, Sat 2 – 7 pm

Happy Birthday, Sanna Kannisto!

We are happy to announce that Sanna Kannisto’s book “Observing Eye”, with texts by Barbara Hofmann-Johnson, is now available in the 2nd edition at Hatje Cantz Verlag!

"As individuals, in pairs or in groups, in the centre of the image, sitting on branches, some of them with leaves or berries, or in flight, in the Finnish artist’s purist-aesthetic stage sets the birds pose as in portraits. With their colorful, graphically patterned plumage and individual physiognomies, they demonstrate once again why, in the diversity of their species, Charles Darwin already considered them belonging to the most aesthetic animals in nature”.

Image to Image "All the Pretty Landscapes"

The forth and current edition of our Image to Image "All the Pretty Landscapes" is on display until 15 January! We welcome you at the live streaming every day from 3 to 8 pm or take a look at the exhibition online on video.personsprojects.com.

"All the Pretty Landscapes", does not only explore different angles of landscape representation but also looks at humanity’s responsibility to our environment. Curator Olaf Stüber has therefore assembled a range of very individual and personal looks upon mother nature, all devoted to the fight against climate change. Featuring artworks by Bigert&Bergström, Almagul Menlibayeva, Lukas Marxt, Bjørn Melhus and Maryna Makarenko. Curated by Olaf Stüber.

“Imperial Valley (Cultivated run-off)” is the unique artistic approach of Lukas Marxt towards one of California´s most important regions of industrial agriculture which attained sad notoriety through the Mexican migration movement. Accompanied by baleful, alarming, whistlingbooming electro sounds (Jung An Tagen), the speedy drone flight over the valley becomes a journey in an extinct, abstract, uncanny, hostile landscape: a dystopian science fiction scenario, anchored in the reality of the present.

We are looking forward to the fair season next year!
For ARCOmadrid 2022, we launched an online exhibition that you can now visit online until 14 January 2022.

https://arco-exhibitions.ifema.es/en_EN/e-xhibition/9e8e0a9b-1cba-4d46-8339-bcf1b6d0072b.html

Featuring works by Eeva Hannula, Tiina Itkonen, Eeva Karhu, Sanna Kannisto, Ville Kumpulainen, Hilla Kurki , Jussi Nahkuri, Mikko Rikala, and Niina Vatanen.

Under the theme #mecomprounaobra, Fundación ARCO supports contemporary art and collecting. Persons Projects presents a selection of works from nine different artists who are all part of The Helsinki School. Although these artists come from different generations and each one of them explores the art form in a highly individually way, their conceptual approach towards photography is what combines them all together. By showing well established artists aside from emerging positions of this movement, the exhibition highlights not only the variety of innovative concepts and techniques but also the sustainable collective dialogue they share.

Image to Image, Transoxiana Dreams

The forth and current edition of our Image to Image "All the Pretty Landscape" is on display until 15 January! We welcome you at the live streaming every day from 6pm to 12pm at our gallery window at Lindenstraße 35, Berlin – or take a look at the exhibition online on video.personsprojects.com.

"All the Pretty Landscape", does not only explore different angles of landscape representation but also looks at humanity’s responsibility to our environment. Curator Olaf Stüber has therefore assembled a range of very individual and personal looks upon mother nature, all devoted to the fight against climate change. Featuring artworks by Bigert&Bergström, Almagul Menlibayeva, Lukas Marxt, Bjørn Melhus and Maryna Makarenko.

Almagul Menlibayeva's "Transoxiana Dreams" is a mythological narratives placed and staged in the vast landscape of the artist’s native Kazakhstan. She leads her audience to the brutally changed region of the Aral Sea where its indigenous people live in the Aralkum, the desert of a once thriving region now entirely devoid of water due to the radical Soviet irrigation politics. Menlibayeva breeds an eccentric storyline and fantastical imagery extracted deeply from her own atavistic repertoire, and leading visional through an existing, yet unimaginable landscape in a distant and hypnagogic world.

"Strange things happen when things disappear", wrote Jean Baudrillard in his essay, from which the title of this exhibition is derived. The exhibition brings together works by various artists from different backgrounds that form an associative web of fragmentation, time dimensions, violence, and transformation. Their works build a semi-fictional space without trying to tell a coherent story.
We would like to invite you to the group exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bochum presenting artworks by Zofia Kulik. The show will open tomorrow!
