Axel Straschnoy is a visual artist interested in the relationship between humans and the mechanical and symbolic devices they use to aprehend, represent and archive the world. His work is based on long-term, research-based projects, often collaborative in nature. He is interested in alternative venues and ways to frame the encounter between work and audience. He created the production company Kolme Perunaa as a tool to realize his work. He was born in Buenos Aires in 1978 and currently lives and works in Helsinki.
