Anna Broms

Anna Broms is a Helsinki based visual artist who works in the field of painting.

For the past few years, she has been developing situations, experimental painting installations with the interest in fragility and porousness, in particular. Rather than solid objects her works can be seen as subjects, evolving. Her process-oriented practice has a delicate ecological approach to materials.

Anna Broms holds an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts

The matter never rests.

The delicate organic cotton batiste reacts to everything: the wind, humidity, and touch. In unison with other materials and the weather conditions, the works gain skin-like properties. Could animals even benefit from the presence of the works?

At HIAP Suomenlinna I will develop further my work on fragile installations, started on the mainland in Uutela nature reserve area Helsinki with the support of Kone Foundation and Arts Promotion Centre Finland (2021-2022). The latest exhibition, EEMELIKELLO, took place in Gallery Oksasenkatu 11 in March 2023.

Anna Broms’ residency at HIAP is realised in collaboration with University of the Arts Helsinki Foundation.
