DELICATE DEMONS

SATU HAAVISTO & AINO KANNISTO

4 - 28 June 2015

Opening: Thursday 4 June, 6pm

 

Delicate Demons is a collaborative effort by Finnish photographers Satu Haavisto and Aino Kannisto. They are making constructed photographs by creating cinematically staged scenes where a woman plays a fictional role specifically designed for her. The models are ordinary women of different ages.

At the heart of the series are the countless different experiences of womanhood with their often contradictory dimensions. The artists are particularly interested in emotions and embodiment, and the photograph as a tool to portray the connection between the two.

The aim for the artist has been to create the kind of public imagery of womanhood that media and the entertainment industry does not represent actively, often perceived as too private in an embarrassing or banal way. The Artists are awarded with this exhibition due to the nomination of the Best portfolio 2014 in Backlight Photo Festival on September 2014 in Tampere Finland.
