Salon Dahlamann in Berlin is showing Terike Haapoja’s exhibition “Gravitation” from 12.09-16.12.2017
GRAVITATION marks a turn to a more intimate, direct approach in Haapoja’s practice. The series of 73 photographs are born from a personal urgency that bypasses discourse. Created at fast pace during a time of physical and emotional hardship, the images reveal moments of desire, mortality, abandonment and agency, objectification and the pull towards becoming an object. The series is a beginning of a new focus: after extensive exploration of the question of the nonhuman, Haapoja’s new work will be looking at what have we become as humans, and how our individuality, our desire to be free or the desire to give away our freedom, is constructed.
Artproof thanks Terike for the possibility to cooperate with printing and framing.
