Helsinki Photography Biennial 2014

Helsinki Photography Biennial 2014 is curated by Başak Şenova, a curator and designer based in Istanbul. Başak Senova has invited Branko Franceschi (Zagreb) to co-curate a special section for the biennial. The biennial is a series of events on photo/lens-based contemporary art open from March 27 in Helsinki. The biennial features contemporary art from Finland and beyond, and is organized every two years in the spring. HPB14 is produced by Union of Artist Photographers / Photographic Gallery Hippolyte in collaboration with The Finnish Museum of Photography.

The title of the biennial, Ecological Fallacy, refers to the term ecological fallacy in statistics. It is a logical error or a mistaken assumption in the interpretation of statistical data. Derived from this analogy, the biennial questions analogous errors and assumptions, which are deliberately and systematically made by the ruling powers that violate the ecological balance of the world. In this context, Basak Senova’s curatorial framework addresses fallacies of ecological knowledge and fosters collaborative connections between ecological data and photography-based archives. The biennial seeks correlated artistic approaches and perspectives as a way of producing and processing evident critical, social and cultural discourses on these fallacies. It serves as the suture that draws the accumulated data about fallacies on ecology into visual evidences and lens-based realities. The Ecological Fallacy exhibition features 19 projects from artists around the globe.

The Mustarinda Association has worked on the theme of the Helsinki Photography Biennial and built a section for the exhibition called Objects on Oil, which evaluates the changes in our concept of and relationship with nature from the viewpoints of archives, architecture, forest, and energy. Objects on Oil brings to the fore the fossil basis of human experience, economic activity, and industrialized societies more widely, and the breaks in our understanding related to this material foundation.  Objects on Oil will be on show at The Finnish Museum of Photography and at the L3 warehouse in Jätkäsaari. It is in dialogue with the part of the Ecological Fallacy exhibition curated by Basak Senova.
