Annika Dahlsten is a visual artist who works with animation, printmaking, photography and video. She studied visual arts and animation in Turku Arts Academy. The themes of her works often include borderline states: the pauses between absence and presence, or moments when reality is distorted and something familiar and ordinary turns strange and uncanny. The basis of the works lies in metamyths such as mortality and immortality, memory and recognition. Dahlsten’s works have been exhibited widely both in Finland and internationally in exhibitions and festivals. She often works in residencies.
