For the sixth consecutive year, Institut finlandais is partnering with the Circulation(s) photography festival for its 14th edition, held between 6 April to 2 June 2024 at CENTQUATRE-PARIS, a collaborative arts venue in the 19th arrondissement. 

This year’s festival features the work of 24 artists of 14 different nationalities, including Finland’s Utu-Tuuli Jussila, who has been selected to present their project Härmä/Hoar, an exhibition supported by Institut finlandais.

Härmä/Hoar focuses on the artist’s grandmother, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and imagined that people were breaking into her yard or basement. A motion detection camera was installed to ensure that these people would be identified, but the camera ended up watching the artist’s grandmother instead. 

Utu-Tuuli Jussila is a photographer based in Helsinki. They are also a doctoral researcher in gender studies at the University of Helsinki. Their artistic practice revolves mainly around collected images and collaborative methods. Since 2014, their work has been the subject of several exhibitions in Finland and abroad. 

Discover their work until 2 June 2024 at CENTQUATRE-PARIS.
