Put Put: Photography On
Date(s): Oct 23, 2015 – Jan 16, 2016
Location: Tallberginkatu 1, Helsinki, Finland
In the exhibition “Photography On” the Swiss/Danish artist duo PUTPUT will present a new series of work focused on the photographic object. A topological exploration of how photographs are applied to everyday consumer products, personalized photographic application on ready-made objects and products manufactured based on a photograph as the main source of form.
Through a series of poetic, funny, poignant and provocative objects with applied photographs PUTPUT will showcase new aspects of photography in an exhibition perched at the cross section where photography, ready-mades, advertising, sculpture and styling meet. The contradictions between fine art and kitsch become apparent and will hopefully contribute to the discussion of how imagery is perceived both in a gallery/museum context but also as the all encompassing phenomena of the visual world we are living in.Event Site
