We at Persons Projects feel privileged to have the opportunity to introduce you to the edition box "MAA” by Jyrki Parantainen. First hand produced and signed in 1991, we feel compelled to rerelease the remaining editions to commemorate the exhibition Poetic Realities (up until the 25 June 2020).
This series consists of 11 photographic images from Parantainen’s Earth-Series (1981-1991) and reveals his earliest interventions into the Finnish landscape in a highly individual way.
These images reflect Parantainen’s unique process of working from his choice of sites to the laborious effort to integrate other materials into the works. His visceral combinations of different physical elements such as dry ice and ignited gasoline, create a surreal visual experience. He also used various organic materials from milk to chalk stone, ice and fire lit torches to transform his selected environments. Parantainen created these personal landscapes for the sole purpose of photographically capturing that one specific moment when these various elements merge together to form a Land Art experience.
Persons Projects is thrilled to announce the participation at ARCO Madrid 2020.

Purdy Hicks Gallery in London is exhibiting a solo show with the works of Helsinki School artist Jorma Puranen .
During a residency at Harewood House in Yorkshire to celebrate the tercentenary of the great landscape designer Capability Brown, Jorma Puranen photographed Harewood's landscape and lake, one of Brown's most significant contributions. Long exposures were taken, mirrored in a painted board prepared by the artist, resulting in painterly, fragmented impressions of nature in which the ground, the brushstroke, and the reflection are inseperably superimposed.
In contrast to this carefully considered and quintessentially English landscape is Puranen's Icy Prospects series. Here the artist demonstrates his deep fascination for and knowledge of the wilderness of the Arctic, creating a relationship between the philosophical concept of the sublime terror of the forces of nature and his own experience of life in these regions.
The works from Riitta Päiväläinen and Wilma Hurskainen are part of a group exhibition Second Skin at the Museum Sinclair-Haus in Germany. The exhibition examines and exemplifies the possible meanings of assuming another, a "Second Skin” – whether the goal is to distinguish oneself from nature or to become one with it, so to speak.Duration: October 16, 2016– February 12, 2017
