Discussion: Morten Torgersrud: Circulating Sites

8 May, 5.30 pm, Photographic Gallery Hippolyte

Pekka Niskanen and Morten Torgersrud have invited Lea Kantonen to discuss the shared themes of their exhibitions at Photographic Gallery Hippolyte.

There will be a chance to view the work at 5 pm. The discussion will start c. 5:30 pm.

Discussion in English. Welcome!

Morten Torgersrud‘s (b. 1971) interests lie in the relation between photography and space/place/landscape, what one could call the geographic logic of photography. His work considers ontological and conceptual aspects of photography and space in relation to political-economic configurations of the northern geography in particular. He is interested in both historical and contemporary references.

For his stay in Helsinki Torgersrud will do research on Finnish photography projects relating to the north. He will also be looking into different scientific materials from the same area.

Morten Torgersrud is hosted by HIAP as a part of Focus AiR Residency Programme. Focus AiR is an initiative of Photographic Gallery Hippolyte / The Union of Artist Photographers co-organised with Centrum för fotografi (Stockholm) and Forbundet Frie Fotografer (Oslo).
