Illusia Juvani (b.1988) is visual artist, originally from Lapland, Finland. As a child Juvani’s idol was Ursula from the Little Mermaid. At the core of J. A. Juvani’s process you can find subjects like queer, feminism, death, lust, poetry, love, hate, stereotypes, worn out clichés and just general silliness. Juvani works with video, photography, sound, objects and text, with a strong essence of performance art. “Comedy is my most beloved instrument. When the laughter stops, you have to think what I actually want to say. I hope your experience won’t ease your mind, that it haunts you and doesn’t leave you at peace.” Illusia Juvani currently lives and works in Helsinki, Finland.
