52 WORKS AND WEEKS

Omakuva sairauden jälkeen / Self-portrait after sickness (2016) / gif-animation / 2016

52 WEEKS AND WORKS is a series of 52 art works, each made in one week, during one year.

The works in this series are about subjects like bikinis, belongings, beaches, crying, gazing, accommodation, family-relations, waiting, posing, grrl power, pastiches, surviving and controlled glitter. In these works the (western art) history is mixed with the contemporary desires and online fortune telling: the artist is photoshopped onto Sandro Botticelli’s Venus, shrouded into a sleeping bag and in another work a conversation between an online oracle and the artist is documented by recording the screen of the computer. These works in this series are part of my artistic manifestation against inequality, exploitation and discrimination and the works are reclaiming undesirable labels and unrecognised statuses.
