Pinja Valja (1984) is a media artist from Helsinki, Finland. Valja works mostly with short films. Frequent themes in her work evolve around the questions of the structures of reality. For example, she questions the common and institutionalized, monogamous approach to love and relationships in her most recent films, A Poly Love Story (2017) and The Image of You (2017). Valja’s work often combine different genres of arts and film with a queer edge.
