Visual/Performance artist | Finland
Helinä Hukkataival (b. 1941) has practiced as an artist since 1969, while working as an art teacher of comprehensive and upper secondary school until 2001.
She holds a BA exam in Fine Arts at Tampere Polytechnic, University of Applied Sciences, Art and Media.
She has been showing her work in several countries around the world, most recent (2019) in China, Italy, Sweden and Spain.
She is an interdisciplinary artist working with live performance, video, photography and installation.
Most of her works encompass life seen through a woman’s eyes. In spite of their ordinary and everyday premises, the course of actions has an unpredicted, perhaps dreamlike logic and viewers are free to interpretations. In her artistic research she is looking for the universal level within personal experiences by showing small incidents, subtle shades and relations, which influence us even if unnoticed.
