Anni Kinnunen (1978) works and lives in Oulu, Finland. Her work consists of videos, photographs and sound. Her video art employs animated images to create motion, and she explores movement in her photographs.
Kinnunen is interested in what moments are composed of, and she makes invisible moments visible through her camera. Her works are expressive rather than based on reality.
Anni Kinnunen addresses the relationship between man and nature and the influence of the environment on the development of identity. Several of her works are based on performance and on incidents that last for only a moment, which the camera makes visible. The artist uses herself in her pictures and video works. Making photographs without looking through the camera makes her work uncontrollable, leaving the images open to coincidence and chance.
Kinnunen has exhibited her works extensively in national and international (China, USA and Europe) solo and group exhibitions. Her works are included in public, corporate and private collections.
