Visual Arts / Artist | Finland

Mari Keski-Korsu (b. 1976)

Mari Keski-Korsu explores how ecological and socio-economic changes are manifested in people’s everyday lives –  how a macrocosm becomes a microcosm and vice-versa. Her works are of a political nature with a humorous twist. The starting point of her work is often a location, a place and the relationship of people with it. Keski-Korsu’s practice consists, for example, of interventions, documentary, performance, virtual worlds, photography, live visualisations, and installations as well as of combining of these mediums. Keski-Korsu is interested in relations in between art, activism, politics, and science, and she collaborates with diverse artist groups, researchers as well as organises and curates different types of projects.
