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

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.

A Kiss Given by Time to Light

Opening: 23 – 24 May, 2020, 12 – 6 pm 
Exhibition: 23 May – 25 June, 2020 
Venue: Persons Projects / Helsinki School, Lindenstraße 34, 10969 Berlin 

Persons Projects welcomes you to join us 23 and 24 May 2020 for the opening of A Kiss Given by Time to Light, a group exhibition featuring Timo Kelaranta, Niko Luoma, Pertti Kekarainen, Niina Vatanen, and Kira Leskinen. 

It’s a tribute to Timo Kelaranta’s influence as a mentor, teacher and artist in how his experimentations with abstraction has inspired one generation after another from the Helsinki School. This exhibition reflects upon how all these artists use the photographic process as a means to exercise their own sense for essentiality in defining how they collect time through multiple exposures inspired by sound, space, color and light. Looking back over the past thirty years, Timo Kelaranta must now be considered one of the first photographic pioneers in the Nordic region to explore the numerous possibilities of abstraction as a voice in visual poetry.

Exhibition: 14 March – 21 May 2020  
Venue: Lindenstraße 34, 10969 Berlin


Persons Projects / Helsinki School is thrilled to announce Timo Kelaranta’s solo show, Strange Love. Whether it be in prose, poems or photographs, Kelaranta exercises his own sense of essentiality in how he defines one moment in time. Think of his photographs as words within his own visual poem. This group of images has been selected from the most recent body of works Numeritos as conduits for reflection.

Jyrki Parantainen | Poetic Realities

Exhibition: 14 March – 25 June, 2020 
Venue: Lindenstraße 35, 10969 Berlin


Persons Projects proudly presents a collection of Jyrki Parantainen’s photographs that focus on his fascination with poetic realities. The selected works reflect Parantainen’s interest in how we define our internal viewpoints in order to understand our emotional horizons. Parantainen states "it’s much more than just a sum of shapes, colours, and light. It’s the universe with all its manifestations: grief, longing, dreams, beauty, world politics, environmental disasters, and violence. It’s about the past, the present and the future. The landscape is a canvas permanently open to interpretation”. These works form a collection of perspectives, where words intermingle with each other or rest alone upon the image, ushering in new meanings in how we identify, observe or experience a landscape within his conceptual context.
