Uusi ja uusin aika II (Innocentius X), 2014, digital photograph (detail)


Nov 27 - Dec 7, 2014

Jarkko Räsänen´s first solo exhibition in Finland presents a new series of digital photography and a video projection with the title "Uusi ja uusin aika II". Works are based on collages found from old Finnish history book that Räsänen found dumped to the front of a construction yard. The book was published in 1929. Many of the images were defaced by unknown schoolkids with cut-up faces and heads from 50´s comics and other sources of pop culture imagery. Räsänen selected iconic images of European modern history, scanned and processed them with his self-made photography software: The canvas prints show the "skeleton" images of the defaced portraits, that become revealed through recursive saving process of the high-resolution jpeg to the point where everyday photo-file standard cannot burn anymore information off the image – only the features defined worth seeing in the compression algorithm remain. The video projection on the other hand shows a 6 minute long loop of structural re-arrangement process of a single photograph.

Jarkko Räsänen (Finland) is a Helsinki/Berlin based media artist working with video, photography, sound installations and software design. He is interested in human computer interaction and in the concept of realism in relation to audiovisual media.
