“I occupy myself with the idea that people will have to use less time in the future to acquire sufficient means for financing their basic needs. How will people use their free time then? My work as an artist is dedicated to the organization of everyday working relationships. I stage work, thereby turning it into a performance”.

Essi Kausalainen (b.1979) studied performance art and performance theory at Turku Arts Academy
and the Theater Academy of Finland. Since 2000 Kausalainen has performed in numerous festivals
around the world (Europe, Asia, America), and has had three solo exhibitions in Helsinki (2007,
2008 and 2010).


“In my work I explore the human body/being in relation to the space that surrounds it. I’m
interested in the physical experience of being (body as a space, body as an action, body as an
identity). The pieces are often based on a slow process of making (of becoming). They built a poetic
language of images, gestures and spaces – a language that invites the audience into a gentle
dialogue. The medium of my work varies from performance and installation to drawing and video”.
