Ausstellung: Icy Prospects by Jorma Puranen
For the inaugural exhibition of Persons Projects at its new premises Lindenstr. 35, we are proud to present Icy Prospects a solo show by Jorma Puranen. Puranen is one of the leading artists in the Nordic region who uses photography as medium of choice for the past 40 years. In his Icy Prospects series beginning in 2005, Puranen creatively merges a mixture of mythology, history and the Nordic fascination that surrounds the notion of polar exploration and the North Pole into his dream-like landscapes. His images reflect a place that is borderless, floating in time, a reminder to the immensity of the unknown that is associated with life above the arctic circle.

Puranen states "for fifteen years I have been engaged in landscape projects in which I have prevented direct admiration of the natural scenery by putting something in between the viewer and the subject”. With Icy Prospects, Puranen captures these dream-like melting landscapes by masterfully using an elevated hand-held painted lacquered wooden board, which he then photographs as it mirrors the image it’s reflecting. This technique of painting and lacquering on small wooden boards was commonly used as a means for preserving and documenting polar explorations in the 18th century.
