Santeri Tuori | Time Is No Longer Round

Santeri Tuori | Time Is No Longer Round

Opening: 11 September, 2020 
Exhibition: 10 September – 31 October, 2020 
Venue: Persons Projects, Lindenstraße 35, 10969 Berlin

Persons Projects is very pleased to announce the upcoming show Time Is No Longer Round with Santeri Tuori. 

Santeri Tuori is a multifaceted artist who has been engaging with the properties of nature and its power of change for more than two decades. Forests, skies, lilies and wind, are only some of the basic elements you might find in any Nordic landscape, and all become foci of Tuori’s interest and observation. How to value such essential features that make up this northern scenery is the fundamental question that underlies Tuori’s work and his fascination with the passage of time.

The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being


Exhibition: 27 June – 5 September 2020 
Venue: Lindenstraße 34 – 35, 10969 Berlin 

Persons Projects | Helsinki School is proud to present our group exhibition The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being. This show will take place in both of our spaces Lindenstr. 34 and 35, and will be accompanied with our latest publication from the Helsinki School series volume 6 by Hatje Cantz.
This exhibition focuses on how these selected artists from the Helsinki School use their internal compass to intrinsically measure and guide their perspective in interpreting the landscape they live in. Historically, Nordic culture abides by the power generated by the changing of the four seasons. Each of these natural time periods either by its wrath or grace, notches its mark upon its passing, leaving a reminder in its wake of how fragile our human presence is within it.

Opening: Friday, May 2, 2014, 6 – 9 pm
Exhibition: May 3 – June 21, 2014

Gallery Taik Persons is thrilled to present Santeri Tuori’s first solo exhibition in Berlin. The show exhibits photographs from the series Sky Prints (2011– 12/2014), as well as a video from the Forest series (2009).

Santeri Tuori is one of Finland’s leading contemporary visual artists. As an exponent of the Helsinki School, he has become well known for his innovations in merging the media of photography and video art. The combination of still and moving images in Tuori’s works weaves together multiply layered com- positions that present more than the mere sum of their productive parts. While the subjects of his series have various origins in classical genres of human portraiture (e.g. Bogeyman [2001/2004], 35 Minute Smile [2002], Karlotta [2003/2004]), traditions of landscape painting (as with the works now on display), or in more abstracted, minimalist depictions of nature and natural environment (e.g. Sea [2004], Waterfall [2006]), all have in common that space is never organized according to the straightforward linear logic of temporal order and movement habitual to our practices of seeing – not only in viewing nature, but also art.
