I am a visual artist working mostly with video, photography and performance. Alongside my visual practice, I work as a freelance writer focusing on contemporary art, visual culture, dance and live art. I do also occasionally work as a teacher, lecturer and give workshops. At the moment I am based in Helsinki, Finland and in Flanders, Belgium.
This is my online portfolio emphasizing my most recent works. Many of them have been connected to my practice-as-research project (I was awarded a PhD 2016) in which I was focusing on the questions of the painterly (for me it is a mental visual framework and philosophical concept) on lens-based art practise, autobiography/ biography / historiography. For the latter, I made a research of writings by and about three artists from the past: Gwen John, Helene Schjerfbeck and Virginia Woolf.
Since PhD project I have moved towards movement and body based art works. That has always been part of my interests as an artist, but now I am delving more deeply into it. I am keen to see what ‘concepts’ such as choreography, movement, somatic dance brings into my visual art practice, and how these ‘concepts’ works on public space and on non-dancers.
This site includes a blog whereI’ll post upcoming events and exhibitions, as well as glimpses to my works in process, thoughts about subjects of different kind of interests, maybe some odd critique-like writings of what I’ve seen.
