In my research-creation work, I explore human and nonhuman entanglements within the subarctic and arctic regions through the prisms of photography and environmental humanities. I have been dedicating my life and work to the complex and multiple spaces of the North where I have been engaging with impacts of extractivism, industrial architecture, or the power of imagination on/in Northern multispecies communities, as well as with related challenges linked for instance to food justice, toxic bodies and landscapes, or feminine subsistence.
The multiple theoretical lenses I employ are connected to feminist environmental humanities, indigenous studies, materialisms and social anthropology among others.
Using my analogue medium format camera as a compass, I connect with beings, things and places, allowing for genuine exchanges on all levels. Feeling rather than seeing, I let myself be guided and surprised by the flow of interactions, leaving space for the quiet and hidden dialogues.
Throughout this process, I sit with the questions of research ethics and sustainability, constantly questioning my own gaze and role as artist and researcher. From a place of connection and respect for the more-than-human beings involved, I always engage with divers ways of knowing and doing.
