Bio Henna-Riikka Halonen is a multidisciplinary artist who graduated from The MFA-Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, London in 2006. Halonen makes films, performances, drawings, texts and installations that open up a space to re-imagine and re-experience the world we inhabit. By creating worlds within worlds or systems within systems, her work explores our relationship to objects, words and other living beings, in a world where transformations from material to virtual, body to image, are taking place continually. She is particularly interested in moments of collapse and friction and addressing the gap between experience and explanation, in which one comes to face the limits of either space or language.
She has worked on and produced many collaborative large scale projects and commissions in UK, Israel, Ireland,France, Sweden and Finland and has shown her work widely in international exhibitions and festivals such as IFFR, Rotterdam 2018, Hayward Gallery London, 2017, Biennale of Sydney 2014, Lilith Performance Studio. Malmo, Centre Pompidou, Paris etc.
