April 11, 2014

The exhibition combines work from his Site/Cloud series with more abstract, colourful works from his latest series, Meteor. His images in predominantly black and white -  sometimes with a subtle hint of colour -  show a haunting, indefinable world with shadowy, anonymous apparitions and nondescript places, contrasted with sublime, colourful representations of skies and clouds which evoke feelings of timelessness.

Ola Lanko - All Year Round

March 06, 2014

Ola Lanko presents a new project that investigates and depicts the notion of time in an unusual manner. Her work comprises 365 photographs offering a literal retrospective of a year. The project is presented as an installation that gives the opportunity to experience time and its passing as momentum as well as a continuous and repetitive process where day and night, nature and weather conditions alternate in a natural way. In her project, Lanko combines the mechanical rationalism of the camera with a romantic sense of transience.
