Terike Haapoja

Kandidat 2011

I Terike Haapojas konst varvas ett förhållande till världen baserat på erfarenhet och vetenskaplig kunskap. Den nya teknologin och vetenskapliga metoder är redskap hon använder för att begrunda livets centrala frågor såsom minnet, förhållandet till naturen, förgängligheten och gemenskapen.

Även om hennes installationer och verk som kombinerar olika uttryckssätt baserar sig på forskning och på samarbete med experter inom olika områden, för Haapoja snarare tankarna till en poet än till en konstnär eller forskare. I hennes omsorgsfullt utförda arbeten byggs spänningen upp i gränslandet mellan en inre erfarenhet och objektiv dokumentation där det poetiska föds.
