Elina Brotherus

Elina Brotherus has worked throughout her career in photography and moving images using intimate stories to replay implicit feminism: her self-portraits investigate the relationship between the female individual and space, questioning humanity’s place within nature. Her artistic work follows her personal metamorphosis in how she sees herself both in front of and behind the camera. In a way, she eliminates the question of authorship and focuses her attention on the invitation to create her own interpretation, with closeness yet cool conceptual distance. Brotherus’s oeuvre has alternated between autobiographical to art historical approaches utilising iconic images from 19th to 20th-century paintings as well as inspiration from the Fluxus movement. By that she creates an equilibrium between the more objective conceptual thinking of art-making and its histories, combining it with the emotional and personal.
