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 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 is a graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki.

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 continue my work on painting installations started on the mainland, in Uutela nature reserve area, Helsinki in June 2021.

The project has started with the support of Kone Foundation and Arts Promotion Centre Finland (2021-2022).

The residency and studio space for Anna Broms is granted by University of the Arts Helsinki Foundation in collaboration with HIAP.
