The photographic and video works by the Finish artist Elina Brotherus (1972) have most often been set up as static self-portraits, either indoors or out, that shed new light the classic issue of an individual's relationship to space. At the end of April, the book “Elina Brotherus: Artist and Her Model” came out. About the album, the artist says that at forty years of age, it is strange to look at her earlier photographs from 15 years ago, and to see this young girl (herself) in the frame: “What has changed over this time? Flats, men; my face has aged. However, the aesthetic of my photos has remained unchanged.” Currently, the artist is actively working on solo shows and participating in group shows. Along with the solo show in Copenhagen's Martin Asbaek gallery this June, her works can be seen in London's Saatchi gallery, in the group show “Out of Focus: Photography”, going on through July 22. Elina Brotherus and the Latvian phtographer Alnis Stakle, along with a slew of other photographers from around the world, will be taking part in the festival in Brussels.
