Pilvi TAKALA (1981, Finland) graduated from the art academy in Helsinki in 2006. Her video works are based on performative interventions in which she researches specific communities in order to explore social structures and question the normative rules and truths of our behaviour in different contexts. She was an artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (2009-2010) and was awarded the Dutch Prix de Rome. Her work is displayed in solo exhibitions throughout Europe.
