Echo by Perttu Saksa / Laboratory
ARTS / April 2012 – Echo is alive at Laboratory. The exhibition of Perttu Saksa, one of Finland’s most noted young photographers, takes us into questions related to nonhuman, on thinking ourselves through animal. The exhibition (13.4.-20.5.2012) challenges us to examine the way we perceive ourselves – through fragile images of taxidermic primates, captured into European museum archives from colonial Africa and Latin America. Perttu Saksa questions how our histories are written and represented through photography and natural science. The exhibition is accompanied by Perttu Saksa’s debut book, Echo with texts by Ron Broglio, and discussion between Jan Kaila and Perttu Saksa. The book is published by Musta Taide and available at the gallery store.
