23 Possible Ends of a Firefly
25 June–18 July 2021

Open curtains, broken rails. A small, fragile, hovering dot. The dots become visible like fireflies. In the middle of everything, the beauty of consciousness, a silver wattle with its leaves persistently reaching into the air. I ask all observers to pay attention to them, their far-reaching mysterious glow. The plants invite you to have fun with them, even though everything seems to be going wrong for one reason or another.

23 Possible Ends of a Firefly is an installation that combines moving images with sound. The starting point was the thought of a photograph as some kind of stage, as a performance in which those present are together once. All signs lead to one point, one gate in time. However, something is happening outside of one’s vision.

Sanni Saari (b. 1990, Rauma) creates atmospheric worlds through photography, video, installations and sound. Her work is experimental and resembles a process. Saari earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the Tampere University of Applied Sciences in 2017 and is currently attending the master’s degree program in photography at Aalto University. In her most recent projects, the artist has dealt with the materiality of dust, the reflections of a digital image and the temporary nature of a moment and art.
