Known by most as the film director of such award-winning masterpieces as Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks to name a few, 75-year-old David Lynch has long established himself as a musician, artist and photographer. Infinite Deep presents David Lynch as the most important visual artist of our time. The focus lies on his photographic works, showcasing Lynch’s long and important artistic career, allowing the visitor to meet David Lynch’s versatility within the photograph for the very first time. The works are exhibited with a red artistic thread, which takes the spectators on a thought-provoking journey. They challenge, provoke and invite the inquisitive visitor to enter a subtle visual world.
The exhibition is divided into five parts – Snowmen, Factories, Nude, Distorted Nudes, and Portraits – that provide the framework for a unique opportunity to explore Lynch’s photographic works and to help understand his artistic way of approaching scenarios that have inspired and influenced his films.
About the Distorted Nudes picture series, David Lynch says: “Distorting these anonymous photographs was a dream come true. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and purer.”
Do not miss the opportunity to see Lynch’s perplexing but alluring photographic art in person this Fall!
This year, Helsinki Photo Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary with two extraordinary exhibitions: the retrospective show featuring artists from more than fifty countries and the must-see Infinite Deep exhibition by David Lynch! The retrospective exhibition of the festival presents all the themes displayed from 2018 to 2022: Love, Anarchy, Trust, Fearless and Believe
The exhibition will take place in Helsinki’s iconic Länsiterminaali T1 (West Terminal T1), where the vibes are certainly in concord with the atmospheric Infinite Deep. Designed by Gunnar Taucher, the building was completed as a port warehouse in 1941. In 1992, it was decided to convert the building into a passenger terminal serving Tallinn’s shipping traffic and it was opened on May Day 1995. Currently, the building is planned to be demolished and replaced by a new, taller terminal building by 2026. Meanwhile, the Helsinki Photo Festival will take over part of the building and convert it for several months into a cultural hub – a democratic space for celebrating photography and visual culture.
