Visual artist Outi Laine (b. 1970) works mainly with video and installation art, experimenting with other media as well. For the past few years she has been focusing on both social and political themes in her works – from the viewpoint of an individual. Her language is narratively minimal, portraying one scene without dialoque. She loads the scene and actions with symbolic values through which the story is told. Her works have been recently shown at exhibitions in MUU Gallery, Helsinki and Sœrland’s Art Museum, Norway, as well as at festivals and screenings; FestArte Video Festival in Milan and Rome, Kakelhallen in Mariehamn and Waterpieces Festival in Riga. Laine has works in collections of both Oulu and Helsinki Art Museums and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art. Outi Laine (b. 1970) is currently living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She graduated in 2002 with an MFA from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and in 2005 with an MA from University of Art And Design, Helsinki.
