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. In sculpture my main medium is ceramics. At the moment I study the coral reef communities and underwater life. I explore the different worlds, livings and realities also 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 cats.
I live in Helsinki and I work in Savion taiteilijayhteisö in Kerava.
