In her ongoing series The Structure of Uncertainty, Eeva Hannula explores psychoanalytical method and the concept of Freud’s uncanny using a combination of staged photography and material from her personal archive, covering and hiding parts of the images as a metaphor for repressed or incomprehensible experiences and perceptions. Error, chance, and experimentation are essential to the work. For Hannula, the image itself is an uncertain matter located between fact and fiction, language and body.
Eeva Hannula, b. 1983, is an emerging photographer currently studying for her MA in photography at Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture in Helsinki, Finland. In 2013, she was awarded a grant from the Arts Council of Finland and selected as part of Foam Magazine’s Talent Issue.
