NEW GHOSTS IN SYDNEY

May 16, 2019

New Ghosts at the Head On Photo Festival in Sydney.

@headonphotofest is a massive international art event spread all over the city. Here are some photos from our installation in the Royal Botanic Garden, located close to the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Thank you Moshe Rosenzveig, Anita Schwartz, and Stephen Godfrey. You have done such an amazing job building this fantastic photo festival. We are so happy and honored to be part of it ❤️

I would also like to thank all the other artists we met during our trip to Australia. We are especially grateful for all the people who stopped us on the street just to talk with us and those who have sent us messages afterwards. It has ment so much to us. It’s truely amazing to travel 25 hours to the other side of the world and find people who know what we are doing and who are touched by our photographs and are passionated about them. We feel happy and grateful to be part of your lives ❤️⭐️🙏

Yours, Aki & Astrid

PS. This giant New Ghost at the Circular Quay Station(!!!) located between Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and Sydney Opera House.

NEW GHOSTS, NEW YORK

New Ghosts in New York. Short term exhibition in Central Park, New York.

Our plan was to travel here together. To celebrate life after you have beaten cancer. Now, more than two years after your death, I’m here alone.

TIRED BIRD IN THE WAITING ROOM

February 2, 2018

Sinikoski & Sinikoski

Hello fellows! I just wanted to drop you photos from yesterday’s short term exhibition called Tired Bird in the Waiting Room.

We artists often try to do something that leaves a mark in the history. To make us kind of immortal. When I was little my father told me mosquitos are alive only for one day. It felt like well if they live on this planet for such a short time, why do they have to be born at all? Just to die a short moment afterwards… We just wanted you to know that there will be a sequence of exhibitions to follow with this photo series we have been working on since my daughter was four years old. These exhibitions will last for only one day or less, and we will not promote them in any way in advance. They just happen in random places without notice. 
Maybe you now ask what’s the purpose of such a short exhibition if no one else knows about it. But that’s your question, not ours. We already have the answer.

WE ARE JUST LONELY SKELETONS WITH GOLDEN TEETH

Sinikoski & Sinikoski

We artists often try to do something to leave a mark in the history. To make us kind of immortal. When I was a little boy my father told me mosquitos live only for one day. I remember thinking: well if they are on this planet for such a short time, why do they have to be born at all? Just to die a short moment later… This photo is from mine and my daughter’s first Ghosts Watching Over Me winter outdoor exhibition here in Finland. The name of the exhibition was We Are Just Lonely Skeletons with Golden Teeth. …There will be a sequence of exhibitions to follow with this photo series we have been working on since my daughter was four. These unmarked exhibitions last for only one day or less, and we won’t promote them in any way in advance. They just take place in random locations without notice.

What a night, what an opening!
?❤️⭐️
A big thank you to Alla & Julia and rest of the crew organizing this fantastic exhibition named Pohjoinen kohtaaminen. A lot of great photographers presented, so if you are in Oulu, Finland, during 23.9-12.11.2017 make sure you visit Northern Photographic Centre. 

These photos are from the photo series called Ghosts Watching Over Me. We have been working on this series together with my daughter since she was four. I think these photos are dealing with the relationship between father and daughter and our fears and dreams.

Ghosts Watching Over Me

Midsummer couldn’t stop us to arrange two hidden exhibitions, Sun is Dead I & II. But it didn’t stop this nice dog either who visited both of them. Thanks to her and other creatures for meeting us and our photos. Our caravan will now continue to the mountains where we will have more Ghosts Watching Over Me exhibitions.

TRE is one of the coolest spots in Helsinki right now with their interest in art/design/fashion/etc. So I’m really happy they wanted to do this story about the photo series we have been working with my daughter since 2013. And no worries, no Finnish skills needed, the interview is in English. 🙂
Peace & Love, Aki & Astrid

2 x SINIKOSKI + ART RESIDENCY

Sinikoski & Sinikoski: Ghosts Watching Over Me

Hello there! I will be working at an art recidency here in Northern Finland in July. The first part I will work here alone. The last week I will be working together with my daughter on this photo series we are making together. It’s called Ghosts Watching Over Me.

I started to take these photos when my daughter was only four. I think this series is dealing with the relationship between father and daughter and their fears. When my daughter was younger she was afraid of totally other things than today when she is already eight years old.

We are really proud of this photo finished today. We hope it is important for you as well. Take care, you are important!

“She said she don’t want to show her face because her eyes were feeling blue and she had left them at home. I said it’s alright and that I sometimes felt the same.”
This is a new photo from the series called Ghosts Watching Over Me. We are making it together with my daughter.
