Ville Lenkkeri

The Petrified Forest / Kivettynyt metsä

“The Petrified Forest” is a set of photographs and texts that reflect the memories and mental images Ville Lenkkeri has of the little town in the Finnish woods where he grew up. The photographs are stages but they spring from the emotions and memories that he has and which cause him to still call the place his hometown today. The short texts in the book represent missing pictures in the series and they deepen the understanding of the given situations and thus guide the viewer. “The Petrified Forest” is a series that deals not only with subjective memories and growing up in an industrial small town, but also with the structure of truth and nature of representation – a strong link to Lenkkeri’s earlier work. The book is the artist’s fourth impressive monograph.
