Antisocially - enaged art
Helsinki

Antisocially-engaged art investigates and introduces spaces for communication. Conceptually, it draws from the codes of social norms and accepted truths, questioning transparency and exclusivity affected by socio–political, cultural and personal restrictions. Power relations and the utilitarian meanings of socialisation and participation are deconstructed while investigating the line between accessibility and manipulation. Tangibly, the projects are focused on normal everyday activities, as there is nothing more strange and violent. Spaces for antisocial behaviour, such as streets, prisons and schools are particularly precious subjects for this work.

Anastasia Artemeva is a visual and relational artist, born in Russia, raised in Ireland, and currently based in Helsinki, Finland. Her work is developed through a process-oriented artistic practice, drawn from object making, performance art, art education, and research in human rights.
