Galerie Persons Projects
Persons Projects | Helsinki School is proud to present Karl Ketamo’s first solo exhibition, Among Other Things. Inspired by Walter Benjamin’s essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1935), Ketamo questions the relationship between objects of mass replication as opposed to the exclusiveness of the same object as a piece of art. One is produced and marketed on a global scale, while the other finds its exclusivity in a gallery. Ketamo utilizes a multidisciplinary approach in how he realizes his works, using photography, moving image, and sculpture for his various installations and exhibitions. Ketamo objectifies the ordinary by reinventing the normalcy of his chosen subjects. His works redirect our awareness of how these objects symbolize specific issues relevant in today’s society.
