anja helminen

Visual and media artist Anja Helminen had her debut in the Young Artists exhibition in Kunsthalle Helsinki in 1995. She has since then participated in numerous exbibitions in Finland and internationally. She graduated from the Department of Painting at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 1999. Physicality and the presence of the body in the process of painting were important for her from the start, and she explores them now in performances, videos and photography. Since 2005 she has been working with video and photography performatively, with a moving performance for the camera constituting the core of the work. Helminen performs herself in the pieces, turning herself into a piece of art for the camera.
