She has taken the art world by storm with her alluring portraits. The young contemporary Finnish artist Nelli Palomäki (born 1981) has already at an early stage of her career achieved international acclaim as a renewer of the portrait and as an artist who has a deep understanding and appreciation of the tools of the photografic media.
This spring, Ordrupgaard presents the exhibition Nelli Palomäki. Breathing the Same Air as the first solo exhibition by the artist in Denmark. Thus, the Danish public will have the opportunity to experience Nelli Palomäki's intense black and white portraits, which renders a return to the photography aesthetics of an earlier era with a unique beauty; conservative and rebellious at since.
