Comment

Jonna Kina (b. 1984, Finland) is a multidisciplinary artist who works with variety of media, including films, installations, photographs, sculptures, sounds, texts and publications. Her works are conceptual and structural in terms of method. Kina has developed an artistic practice that is focused on investigation. She exhibits her findings with a poetic yet objective and open visual language that activates the viewer, challenging them think critically about what they are being presented with. Her works holds further complexity in its use of artifice to search new perspectives and meanings. Kina reveals, manipulates, and disturbs systems that would otherwise be hidden by the finesse and craftsmanship inherent to the finished product, so that such products may be revaluated.
