It is difficult today to speak of a cohesive Nordic art scene, or national scenes for that matter. Nordic Delights is an attempt to break the homogeneity. The artists included in the exhibition all live and work in the Nordic countries yet most of them have their roots elsewhere. This time it is the so-called minorities who are in the majority.
For many Finnish youths, confirmation means the ending ritual to confirmation classes – a rite of passage, which is symbolized in the confirmation picture. Tanja Konstenius’ video installation, comprised of portraits in motion, examines how a young person's transition happens in front of the camera: how portraiture becomes a manifesto for change, and how gender roles are performed in a rite of passage.
The Finnish Museum of Photography is located at Cable Factory (Kaapelitehdas) in Ruoholahti, Helsinki. We are open Tue–Sun 11am – 6pm, Wed 11am – 8pm, Mon closed. Admission 8 / 5 / 0 €.
The museum is closed Fri 23rd - Mon 26th of June.
Happy Midsummer! Hyvää juhannusta!
The exhibitions for Project Space are selected through an annual open call. The call is open to all makers of photographic art, whether professionals or students. Teams can also submit applications for the open call. The museum's exhibition team goes through the entries submitted through the open call and selects five exhibitions for presentation each year.
