Documentation Hippolyte Korjaamo, Helsinki 21.1-13.3.2022

My solo exhibition at Hippolyte Korjaamo in Helsinki ended at 13th of March 2022. I presented there pictures from two photographic series: The Only Happiness I know is Sad Happy, and Verloren in vertaling / Perdu dans la traduction.

The technical point of departure in both series has been lens-based performances. The works of the two series are also interconnected by an attempt to place the body in space and time, and by the idea that we communicate by other means than just speech, language or writing. Melancholic humour travels through all exhibited works.
