Searching for the Shapes Within is a group exhibition presents works by Grey Crawford, KwieKulik, Teresa Murak, Riitta Päiväläinen, Finnbogi Pétursson, Ragna Róbertsdóttir, Anna Rún Tryggvadóttir and Ryszard Wasko at Persons Projects.
The Art World of the 1960-70’s experienced a healthy transformation in perception with the emergence of Performance and Land Art. These new modes of artistic expression challenged the traditional white cube scenario of what art is and how it should be exhibited.
What we see, breathe and stand on is part of the natural world we build our state of being from. Yet in reality it’s a combination of numerous elements and shapes all converging together to form an environment that’s in constant flux. What all these artists share in common is a mutual sense for experimentation that creates new frames for thought. Their works form a 50-year timeline, beginning in the early 1970’s up until the present, that engages in a joined dialogue that spans from California, Iceland, Finland, Poland to Israel.

On view until February 27, 2021
Due to the current lockdown restrictions we are open by appointment only. Please contact us: [email protected]

Artist Interview: Mikko Rikala

Interview with Mikko Rikala on the occasion of his solo exhibition Paradigms of Chance at Persons Projects.

Mikko Rikala is an artist who uses the photographic process as tool for gathering and recording material to help him in his philosophical pursuit of finding different ways to explore what’s behind the rational self. Rikala states, "I’m trying to uncover the relationship between what is seen as rational on one hand and what is perceived as irrational on the other.” His work is a reflection that merges mystical and philosophical thoughts through the empirical process of observation. Unlike his previous works, where he used the photographic process to record the now and then, these new pieces focus on the mysteries that lie beneath the unseen. He asks, "What are the possibilities for a person to observe and understand the world beyond the rational mind?”

Mikko Rikala’s solo show is featured on Photo London
_____________⁠

Currently, we are open by appointment only.

Until 27 February, @persons.projects, Berlin, presents the exhibitions ‘Searching for the Shapes Within’ and ‘Paradigms of Chance’.

‘Paradigms of Chance’ is a solo exhibition of Finnish artist Mikko Rikala.The exhibition’s most prolific group of works ‘A Year in My Pocket’, features photographs that Rikala took over four seasons from specific places in the Finnish archipelago, where he focuses on the water in its various seasonal cycles. He subsequently prints and folds one photograph for each season and places it in his pocket, which he then carries throughout that season. Every so often he would pull out the trousered photograph to document its transformation and condition, then place it back into his pocket. Like the memories we keep in our heads, the image is transformed over time through its everyday use of being transported and carried.

‘Searching for the Shapes Within’ is a group show focusing on the earth as a common base for different land art interventions. It features work by Grey Crawford, KwieKulik, Teresa Murak, Riitta Päiväläinen, Finnbogi Pétursson, Ragna Róbertsdóttir, Anna Rún Tryggvadóttir and Ryszard Wasko.

Images: Mikko Rikala: "are made of (just) carbon, water, starlight, oxygen and dreams*", 2020, pigment print, 86 x 65 cm, edition of 6 + 2AP, from the series Paradigms of Chance. Both images courtesy of Persons Projects, Berlin 2020.

Grey Crawford is an American artist residing in Los Angeles, California. His photographic works from the 1970’s and early 1980’s have recently been discovered and represent some of the first experimentations with manipulating black and white and color photography. During this time period he also simultaneously, explored a series of performance enhanced works connected with Land Art.
These recently discovered works in this exhibition mark the first time they have ever been exhibited and establish Grey Crawford as one of the most unique artists to evolve out of Southern California from the 1970s. His El Mirage series created in the Mojave Desert represents a group of performance-enhanced photographic works from the mid- 1970s that captures his very early experimental play. Crawford, utilizing steel and glass plates, one to be thrown into the air to randomly land within a designated space, the other as a building material for momentary structures.
“I started with metal shapes and I would throw them into the air and document their flight and how they would plunge into the ground. Then I would mark an area with either string or chalk and throw the plates in the air, hoping to land within the framework of his designated space. Metal has a permanence and integrity of its own. Realizing this and how it looked, I wanted to experiment with the opposite. I started using glass for building basic architectural structures to emphasize the contrasting qualities between the hard and sharp edges of metal with the soft transparent, visually arresting, ultimately breaking traits associated with glass.”
Using the vastness of the desert plane as his ultimate stage, Crawford uses the photographic process to record his multifaceted performances using both Black and White and color photography. These minimal performance-based constructions reflect Crawford’s fascination with exploring the possibilities that emerge through the photographic perspective of angle and view combined with light and time, motion sequencing, to create new architectural realities.

Artist Interview: Eeva Karhu

Interview with Eeva Karhu on the occasion of her solo exhibition Shadows Within at Persons Projects. The show is open until November 14, 2020.

Eeva Karhu is one of the new generation of artists emerging from the Helsinki School who use nature and its seasonal passing as their personal barometer to measure and translate our world by the power of its presence in our daily lives.

She uses photographic process of layering one image upon another as her method for collecting the passage of time. This is most evident in her ongoing Path series, where she photographs the same walking route she takes from her home. After her walk, she compiles all the photographs together into one image to form the given moment they were taken in. Karhu continues this process throughout the year, creating her own visual calendar of time periods based on the harvesting of light from one moment to the next.

Artist Interview: Santeri Tuori

Interview with Santeri Tuori on the occasion of his solo exhibition Time Is No Longer Round at Persons Projects.

Santeri Tuori uses a camera to engage with the properties of nature and its power of change over the past two decades. Forests, skies, lilies, and wind are only some of the basic elements you might find in any Nordic landscape, and all become items of Tuori’s interest and observation. How should we value these essential features that make up the northern scenery is the fundamental question that lies behind Tuori’s work and his fascination with the passage of time.

The show is open until 14 November 2020.
