Alli Savolainen Selected Video Works:
Alli Savolainen will come from Finland to present her video work.
Alli Savolainen works with video, photography, sound and painting. She was born in Joensuu, Finland, and she graduated from Lahti Institute of Fine Arts. Since 1986, she is active as artist in Helsinki's art and film scene. She since has compiled an impressive catalogue of video works which date back until 1989. When writing about her own work, she tells that she is interested in "time continuity and memory". Saying that, she takes the viewer into a contemplation of the duration of visual moments.
In more recent times, Alli Savolainen looks with her camera at cities, street scenes and rural roads, still interested in the poetry of the non-spectacular, vernacular visual environment.
She lives and works in Espoo, Finland. (Metropolitan Area of Helsinki)
