Exhibit: Siblinghood explored in photo and video

In their “Shared” exhibition at the Finnish Institute in Stockholm, Finnish artists Nelli Palomäki and Juhana Moisander explore siblinghood through video installation and photographs. We went to the opening night of the exhibit on the 16th of November.

Nelli Palomäki is known for her timeless portraits of children and young people. Her work focuses on the fragility and silence of the moment shared with her subject as well as on the idea of the uncomfortable portrait. Her works have been exhibited internationally, including an earlier solo show at Kulturhuset in Stockholm and currently being exhibited at Moderna Museet as part of their photography collections. She is a graduate of Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture in Helsinki.

Juhana Moisander combines video projections with sound and objects, always fitting the piece into the given space and its architecture. He has presented his video installations in several international solo and group exhibitions, and is also a graduate of the Aalto University.

For the show at the Finnish Institute Nelli Palomäki has brought some of her striking black-and-white portraits of children and adolescents, sisters and brothers, revealing something rather complex about being siblings.

Along with the photos Palomäki and Moisander have put together a collaborative video installation called “Equality Is a Hassle”, further exploring siblinghood through small personal revelations, psychological victories and awkward obsessions only siblings might share with each other.
