Noora Isoeskeli – Temporary Happiness

Photographic Gallery Hippolyte

Temporary Happiness refers to the length of human life and to the length of happiness, as well as to photography itself. Photography is a medium for recording, in which moments are simultaneously lost and preserved. The moment of the image is duplicated by watching it, forming a time of its own. With my work, I have wanted to create subjects, which are difficult to visualize, such as: death, happiness, nature or time, life, which demands living, and does not stop to be photographed. Known to us all, these enigmas last a whole lifetime, and photography offers me a possibility to deal with them.

Noora Isoeskeli (b. 1982) graduated in Fine Art from the Department of Painting at the Arts Academy in Turku. Currently she is studying in the BA and MA program at The Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Helsinki. Isoeskeli’s work has previously been seen in both group and solo exhibitions, of which the latest one in spring 2011 was One Hundred Attempts to Draw David Lynch at the Napa Gallery in Helsinki.

The exhibition is supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, Uusimaa Regional Fund and Printservice Oy. The opening event is sponsored by Lammin Sahti Oy.
