Milla-Kariina Oja

Born: 1976

Milla-Kariina Oja (s.1976) is a visual artist based in Helsinki who works with photography and moving image. Her practice is particularly focused on video installations, which combine both the experimental and the performative. The themes of her works arise in response to basic questions of existence, such as how human beings inhabit the world and the built environment, and engage with nature and its cycles. Oja has studied photography and contemporary art in Manchester Metropolitan University, and in the universities of Castilla-La Mancha, and Barcelona. Oja’s works have been exhibited throughout Europe and China, notably in The Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing, Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, and Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova museum of contemporary art in Turku, Finland.
