Susanna Majuri: Love
The retrospective exhibition of the work of Susanna Majuri (1978–2020), titled Love, gathers together photographs from her entire career
The retrospective exhibition of the work of Susanna Majuri (1978–2020), titled Love, gathers together photographs from her entire career: her most well-known pieces are shown side by side with less common early works.
Majuri composed photographs through the things she admired and adored. In her work she
created worlds with real substance and invited the viewer to imagine alternative realities; each of Majuri's photographs is like a passage from a
fairytale, or a dream told out loud.
Central elements in Majuri's work include water, strong colors, Nordic nature, and human models who acted as character within the staged scenarios. Water was particularly dear to Majuri, and she became known for the fantastical works she created by submerging an enormous background fabric onto the bottom of a swimming pool. Water can drown us and strong currents may wash us away, but water can also uphold and carry us. Of all the elements in the world, it seems
to most clearly express human feelings, memories, and the unconscious mind.
