Anastasia Artemeva

Anastasia Artemeva is a visual and relational artist, born in Russia, raised in Ireland, and currently based in Helsinki, Finland. Her work is developed through a process-oriented artistic practice, drawn from object making, performance art, art education, and research in human rights.

With the theme Antisocially-engaged art Artemeva investigates and introduces spaces for communication, drawing from the codes of social norms and accepted truths, questioning transparency and exclusivity affected by socio–political, cultural and personal restrictions. Spaces for antisocial behaviour, such as streets, prisons and schools are particularly precious subjects for this work.
