Pose Me an Ocean

Sara Pathirane

The nature is real even when it appears to us as a perfect background for portraits and pictures. The Romantic myth of the lonely man and the power of nature is reborn in our era as masses gather to catch the perfect image in the right location. The Romanticist has turned around, looking straight at us, at the camera. He is saying #smile! Yet, the image can be too wild and unpredictable to be captured, like an ocean under the full moon day.

Installation version also available.

Sara Pathirane

Born: 1985

Sara Pathirane’s work deals with the tradition of landscape painting and the problematics of taking a picture. As shooting locations for her videos she uses nature areas known from movies and paintings, shifting between the everyday and the fiction. She works with video, painting and live-installations. Pathirane lives and works in Helsinki. She has studied in the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts and Accademia Albertina in Torino. Her works have been shown for example at Taiga-Space, Saint-Petersburg (2016), Colombo Art Biennale (2016) and Kiasma (2010, 2013).
