A Building is not a Building

Until 24 January 2010


Modern architecture provides the source material for Ola Kolehmainen’s large scale, hand-printed, colour photographs. The artist is not concerned with documenting these iconic buildings but instead, he focuses on details in which an apparent sense of order is disrupted.


The massive scale of these works envelops the viewer; an experience enhanced by the reflective plastic surface which embraces both the viewers and the surrounding environment as part of the work. 


Ola Kolehmainen is a Finnish artist who currently lives in Berlin, Germany. 

A publication accompanies this exhibition.  Published by Hatje Cantz, it includes essays by Timothy Persons, Alistair Hicks and David Elliott and a conversation with the artist by Arja Miller and Taru Tappola.
