Santeri Tuori

Time Is No Longer Round

11 January - 5 February 2018

Purdy Hicks Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new Forest photographs by Finnish artist Santeri Tuori.

Over the last seven years Tuori has spent much time on the remote island of Kökar in the Åland archipelago making The Forest series. He photographs the same place, from the same spot, over and over again at different times and seasons, sometimes years apart. Multiple images, both black and white and colour, are then superimposed. Likewise, the moving images from the Forest series are the result of layering: colour video with black and white photographs. This gives the films the clarity and richness of a photograph combined with the movement and time of a video.

Santeri Tuori (born 1970, Finland) studied at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. With his photographs and films he has found a way to make the landscape genre come alive.
