Photographies and book preview
Gravitation marks a turn to a more intimate, direct approach in Haapoja’s practice. The series of c. 80 photographs are born from a personal urgency that bypasses discourse. Created at fast pace during a time of severe physical and emotional distress, the images reveal moments of desire, mortality, abandonment and agency, objectification and the desire to become an object. The exhibition presents selected prints from the series alongside a preview of the upcoming publication Gravitation (2017).
The series is a beginning of a new line of work that will be developed under the umbrella title “Freedom series”. After extensive practice on the question of the nonhuman, Haapoja’s new work will be looking at what have we become as humans: how our individuality, our desire to be free or the desire to give away our freedom, is constructed.
