Artist's Statement

I'm a Finnish visual artist working with 3-dimensional art and wide selection of materials and techniques from iron cast and leather work to bank statements and video documentary. With my conceptual installations and sculptures I study social power structures, gender, sexuality and differences between sets of values in and through art.

I'm interested in the political, social and out-speaking nature of art and the interaction between the art works and the spectators. I think that especially working with 3-dimensional art gives great possibilities to create comprehensive visual, functional, intellectual and emotional experiences for the spectators.
