Niina Vatanen SIGNED COPY: A rooms memory / Huoneen Muisti

Niina Vatanen's first monograph, A Room's Memory, includes four bodies of works created between 2006 and 2012. Vatanen builds layers into her images through painting, cutting, bonding, staging and re-photographing. The images thus emerging interweave into a layered tapestry of time and memory. The four works presented in the book are like four rooms of a house. They conceal untold stories about life, transience and love. There are recurring details and suggestive colors from room to room, opening the door for the viewers' own interpretations. Crumpled letter paper, butterfly collections, and marks of the passage of time on the walls reveal deeper meanings under the surface. The quiet and lyrical mood of Vatanen's images will stay with you long after you put the book down. Niina Vatanen (b. 1977 in Kuopio, Finland) studied photography at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. Her works have been on display at several solo and group exhibitions in Finland, Central Europe, Russia and Asia. Vatanen lives and works in Helsinki.
