Until this Thursday, 4 November, you can still see the third edition of Image to Image! 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.

Centering on the 25th anniversary of the Helsinki School, the exhibition features six of the most essential Helsinki School artists using video as an extension to their photographic works. Featuring artworks by Pasi Autio, Elina Brotherus, Sanna Kannisto, Hannu Karjalainen, Jari Silomäki, Santeri Tuori. Curated by Timothy Persons.

Santeri Tuori's "Forest, Tree and a Pond", is part of his Forest series, which has been filmed on the remote island of Kökar in the Åland archipelago during the past sixteen years. In the moving images of the Forest series, black and white photographs and color videos have been superimposed on top of each other. The result is a layered image, which contains the sharpness and richness of a photograph and the movement and time of a video. Images taken at different times or even years come together in the same landscape. Time in these images cannot be counted, not in years, not in split seconds. Time just is.

Framed. Activities for the Camera
Grey Crawford | Hilla Kurki | KwieKulik | Józef Robakowski

The group exhibition "Framed. Activities for the Camera" is focusing on the correlation between performance and photography. Performance as an art form, beginning in the mid-20th century, has been used and developed by contemporary artists through their use of photography as their primary tool for recording their ideas and actions. Understandably, performance needs photography in order to be able to last through time. Yet, photography plays an even more important role, not only as a means for the documentation but especially when the performance is staged solely for the camera.

______

Karl Ketamo | Among Other Things

Karl Ketamo's first solo show "Among Other Things" is Inspired by Walter Benjamin’s essay "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction". Ketamo questions the relationship between objects of mass replication as opposed to the exclusiveness of the same object as a piece of art. One is produced and marketed on a global scale, while the other finds its exclusivity in a gallery. Ketamo utilizes a multidisciplinary approach in how he realizes his works, using photography, moving image, and sculpture for his various installations and exhibitions.

Both exhibitions will run until 15 January 2022.
We welcome you at the gallery Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 6 pm.

We are happy to announce our next 2 exhibitions, running from 29 October 2021 until 15 January 2022. The vernissage will take place on 29 October, starting from 6:00 pm!

The group exhibition "Framed. Activities for the Camera" focuses on the correlation between performance and photography. Performance as an art form, beginning in the mid-20th century, has been used and developed by contemporary artists through their use of photography as their primary tool for recording their ideas and actions. Understandably, performance art needs photography to be able to last. Yet, photography plays an even more important role, not only as a means for the documentation but especially when the performance is staged solely for the camera. This exhibition presents a selection of artists who recorded their actions specifically for this reason: Grey Crawford, Hilla Kurki, KwieKulik, and Józef Robakowski.

Karl Ketamo's first solo show "Among Other Things" is Inspired by Walter Benjamin’s essay "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction". Ketamo questions the relationship between objects of mass replication as opposed to the exclusiveness of the same object as a piece of art.
