Tuija Lindström – Love & Death

Tuija Lindström (1950-2017) is one of Sweden’s renowned names in photographic art. She moved to Sweden from Finland in the 1970s, and in the 1980s she became very noted for her black and white poetic photographs. During the 1990s, Lindström became Sweden’s first female professor of photography and her influence on younger generations of artists and photographers cannot be underestimated.

The exhibition presents a retrospective of Tuija Lindström’s best-known photographs but also lesser-known video works and audio material that together provide a broad overview of her artistic work.

In the exhibition the visitor will see Tuija Lindström’s early works from the 1980s, when she developed her own style in the analog darkroom. With the help of filtered light in the developing device, she produced the characteristic over-radiation that gave the motifs a soft and dreamy expression. The exhibition also shows the image suite with accompanying video work, Kvinnorna vid Tjursjön (1991), which made Tuija Lindström known to a large audience, and which is still her most famous work. Over the years, Lindström came to test different expressions and techniques that are here represented in, among other things, the camera less series Nepenthes Laughing (2010) where plants are placed directly in a scanner, and Roman Roads (2007) kaleidoscope-like montage of plant parts that are presented as round abstracted patterns.

What has been less known of Tuija Lindström’s artistic works are her films, where above all the film Love & Death (2004) connects life with art and creates a new understanding of her work.
