Perttu Saksa's Echo at VB Photographic Centre in Kuopio

Share this news

VB Photographic Centre's exhibition year 2013 starts with Perttu Saksa's solo exhibition.

"Perttu Saksa's series Echo challenges us to examine the way we perceive ourselves – through fragile images, portraits of taxidermic primates, captured into European museum archives from colonial Africa and Latin America. In Saksa's images, every scar is visible and all the glass eyes have faded, but still Saksa forces us to relate ourselves with his chosen motifs. By this simple gesture, he questions how our histories are written and represented through photography and natural science."

The exhibition is open 11.1–24.2.2013.
