I am a Helsinki-based visual artist. My works are installations consisting of sculptural and photographic elements, with having a site specific emphasis. In my works I examine the interplay and interface between the artwork and its surroundings. My thinking is influenced by the notion of photographic understood as trace embodying the presence of absence.

I’m interested in the concept of ruins, seen as a durational  process of various simultaneous material relations and intra-actions. By leaning on emptiness, in my work I aim to open a way crossing over binary oppositions and dualisms.
