Henna Nerg, Visual Artist

My online portfolio with older works can be find here;

I am Finnish artist who is passionate about political events and social
phenomena from all over the world and how it has been shown as an atmospheric change within the current socio-political climate.
Even though the themes in my work are quite rough and serious, I use humor as a tool raise some discussion.
I often use recycled materials and already existing information – in a way I just recycle to reform.
I am drawn to interactivity in practice; Interactivity can offer to the public an experience instead of asking passively absorb
It is a continuing dialogue over spectatorship.
We are all pieces in this strange ADHD circus we found ourselves in.
