ELINA BROTHERUS


BOOK LAUNCH Galleria Heino Friday 27 April 2012 at 15.00

The monograph Elina Brotherus - Artist and her model (Le Caillou bleu, Brussels 2012) will be published in connection with the exhibition which will be held together with Lauri Astala. The book contains scientific articles written by Susan Bright and Timo Kelaranta in addition to photographs.

Most of the photos selected for this exhibition are from the book. They share a common location, France, which for 13 years has been my second home country. The series Artist and her model (2005-2011) concludes the period that began with The New Painting (2000-2004), in which I use myself as an image element, a distanced figure placed in space and contemplated through form and composition. A new, personal approach has gradually crept in over the past years.

Elina Brotherus


Elina Brotherus (b. 1972) is one of Finland´s internationally most acclaimed photographers and video artists. Her early works were autobiographical.
