Two Ways to Carry a Cauliflower at the Miettinen Collection Gallery marks the inaugural exhibition of the Finnish photography artist Emma Sarpaniemi in Berlin. The exhibition, featuring new and existing oeuvres, continues to engage with the themes and vocabulary of staged and performative self-portraiture, which is familiar from Sarpaniemi’s previous set of works. While pursuing the research within the feminist lexicon of self-staging, Sarpaniemi also explores new possibilities and interstices within the genre. The spatial elements of the works, charged with abstraction, echo the inherent domesticity of the gallery rooms: the multiple identities that she explores inhabit the space from kitchen to living room, from bedroom to winter garden.
