Persons Projects is delighted to present Santeri Tuori‘s solo exhibition Time Is No Longer Round, opening on Friday, 11 of September 2020, on the occasion of the Berlin Art Week. The show will also be part of the European Month of Photography Berlin.
Santeri Tuori uses a camera to engage with the properties of nature and
its power of change over the past two decades. Forests, skies, lilies,
and wind are only some of the basic elements you might find in any
Nordic landscape, and all become items of Tuori’s interest and
observation. How should we value these essential features that make up
the northern scenery is the fundamental question that lies behind
Tuori’s work and his fascination with the passage of time.
To fully comprehend his approach is to begin by seeing how he integrates
his life into his projects. An avid sailor, Tuori tours the Finnish
Archipelago each summer, searching for new locations to begin and follow
his measured cyclical observations. The small island of Kökar outside
of Åland has been his primary place of interest.
