Anni Leppälä - Young Artist of the Year 2010

The exhibition of the Young Artist of the Year 2010 is presented at the Tampere Art Museum in Finland. Leppälä received a 20,000 euro stipend awarded by the City of Tampere as well as the opportunity to arrange a private exhibition at the Tampere Art Museum. Anni Leppälä is the 26th Young Artist of the Year. "My interest towards photography is closely related to time in the past tense, to the possibility of being able to make a moment motionless, to make something stand still. That something has existed, and has now been set in static state. There is a certain aspect of lost moments and a feeling of letting go when looking at photographs. They exist at the intersection of the momentary and the constant, between the fleeting feeling of being alive and consciousness of the moments passing by”.
