Anna-Mari Nousiainen (b.1991) lives in Helsinki and works mainly in rural Finland. She is an artist and a filmmaker whose works often take place in forests and fields, outside cities. Nousiainen graduated from Tampere University of Applied Sciences where she studied cinematography and arts. Her works have been shown at various festivals and exhibitions. Nousiainen’s experimental films balance between delightful and disgusting. Creamy pastels turn into slime, falling teeth are in fact crystals, sweet girls paint their faces with blood. Everything is association. Dreams, warped memories and actual events merge into one – lines blur and dreams shift into reality. Every memory is equally important, whether it is true or false.
