The exhibition Välitilat // Liminal Spaces takes its form from souvenirs, uncanny experiences, strangeness, alienation, youth, strains, slits, leather, and pulp. The works are statements, documentaries, studies, and dives into the liminal spaces between youth and adulthood, work and leisure, identities and nationalities, as well as desires and fears. They are gentle, uncomfortable, quiet, difficult, and soft depictions of personal experiences between boundaries and in the gaps of society.
Photofuss is the youth group of The Finnish Museum of Photography, which through collective work provides an opportunity to realise and experience the phenomena of photographic culture. The activities of the group are based on research and experimentation, and are guided by the group’s own interests and ideas. Photofuss plans and produces its own exhibitions. The group is formed for one year at a time, and takes members every spring through an open call.
The exhibition presents works by group members Tuukka Jaromaa, Sanna Nykänen, Milja Laakso, Johanna Lahtinen, Lyy Raitala, Elle Sumelius ja Artem Zazulin. Group coordinator Roope Laukkanen has also taking part in organising the exhibition.
The body of work is produced together with The Culture Factory Korjaamo and The Finnish Museum of Photography.
