Felicia Honkasalo

Felicia Honkasalo lives and works in Helsinki, Finland and has a Masters from the Department of Time-based Arts, University of the Arts, Helsinki, and a BA in Photography from University of the Arts, London UK. Her work has been shown internationally in solo exhibitions, group exhibitions and at film screenings. Her first monograph, Grey Cobalt, was published by Loose Joints in 2019.

Through her work, she delves into the interplay between memory and history, as well as the boundaries between life and death, human and animal. Her primary fascination lies in how our fluctuating relationship to the surrounding world shapes the narratives we construct, the belief systems we form, and the histories we create. She often collaborates with other artists and scholars.
