My production consists mainly of videos and drawings. I’m especially interested in environmental issues and how they affect our mindscapes. How do we, as humans, look back and ahead in the anthropogenic era? At the moment my main theme is food and agriculture and the need to rethink how we’re going to provide nutrition to the growing population in the warming climate.
In addition to my artistic practice I have functioned as a part time lecturer and tutor at the Arts Academy of Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) since 1999. I have also coordinated, curated and planned environmental, situation specific and public art projects for Turku Artists’ Association and TUAS. The largest of these is In Public, In Particular (IPIP), a participatory and situation specific project in 2015-18. I worked as the Artistic Director of the IPIP project, which was co-financed by the Creative Europe Program of the European Union. http://ipip-project.eu/ Currently I am the Project Coordinator of Utopia? *), a joint project of University of Turku and the Arts Academy of Turku University of Applied Sciences in 2019-20. The aim is to produce workshops combining means of active citizenship and artistic processes to vocational school and upper secondary school students.
