In Porvoo Triennal Tatu Tuominen presents his collage series “Studying Modern Architecture with a Knife” and video installation “Standing in the Ruins”. The work deals with issues of modernist architecture and the ideals of living – and how modern architecture is presented in photography: as perfect, complete and without any human presence.
The collage series is made by cutting and gluing pages of architecture books. The video is made by shooting paper scrap, the by-product of the collage series. By reorganizing the mismatched cut-outs Tuominen makes new representations of architecture, new meanings and images of cities that could have been.
