I am a Finland-based artist working with installations and moving images. My focus is on participatory and public art, resulting from interaction and co-working with different communities and people with varying backgrounds. I´m making visible key questions of life, as reflected in different aspirations and thoughts I encounter with participants. My role as an artist is like a mediator or catalyst.
Sometimes even minor participation can be very remarkable for somebody and can give you a sense of inclusion and success.
Materials I´m using in installations are often found, second-hand or thrown-away items.Traces of decay and change – processes that take place in human mind and matter – are present in artwork.
My work has been shown in Finland and internationally in several exhibitions since 1990. Currently I´m living and working in Karkkila in Finland.
