GROSSES TREFFEN

Hertta Kiiski

Born: 1973
Nationality: Finnish
Based in: Finland
Media: Multimedia / Video, Cross Discipline, Photography, Sculpture / Installation

I´m working mainly with photography, moving image and installation. My practice deals with the relationships between fiction and reality, the natural and the artificial, art history and personal history, individual objects and the entirety. Associations and spontaneity play a central role in my work. I strive to combine the photographic and the sculptural, blurring the boundaries between image and spatiality – materializing the gaze and heightening the sense of presence.
