Sari Palosaari works with spatial setups in which different material bodies and objects take place and perform. Her practice revolves around the shift away from the capitalist modernity and anthropocentric worldview toward more sensitive futures. Through considering the materials´ relations, affects and autonomous laws, and, through implementing simple gestures and temporal processes, she deconstructs stabilizing significations placing stress on continuity and transformative motion. In the often site-responsive works she weaves together loose assemblages between the context-specific materialities and histories.
The works can be seen as poetic images of the instantaneous but with speculations on pasts and futures.
Sari Palosaari is a Helsinki-based visual artist. During 2020-2024 her artistic practice is kindly supported by Taike (Arts Promotion Centre Finland).
