A major solo exhibition including some of Puranen's most extensively worked series (Imaginary Homecoming; Icy Propsects, Shadows, Reflections and All That Sort of Thing) as well as recent works from Memoradum of Loss.
The photographic works of Jorma Puranen are a study in history, art, ethnography, anthropology and geography. His images dive deep into archived images and knowledge as well as the histories of our arctic regions. Our sense of cultural memory is explored through themes that span centuries. Puranen aims to unveil hidden histories, stories left in the margins and places that have been forgotten. At the same time the process of photography grounds his work in the present moment.
