My work often deal with animals, human-animal relationships and the habitats. The childhood experiences in the countryside and the memories in contact with other animals have brought the non-human to the interest in my artistic practice. Experimenting, inquiring and intuitive proceeding are the central mode in my approach. I wish to gently guide the viewer to contemplate oneself and the world she shares with others.
My medias are art intervention and sculpture. I explore the different worlds, livings and realities by using site-specific, public interventions. The art interventions are temporal and they consist of unfired, decaying clay objects. My audience/subjects in the interventions shift from humans to other animals like pigeons and cats.
In sculpture my main medium is ceramics. At the moment I study the coral reef communities and underwater life.
I live in Helsinki and I work in Savion taiteilijayhteisö in Kerava.
