Leena Kangaskoski’s artistic practice is build around the notion of materials and symbols being porous and leaking into each other. She uses everyday actions and materials, often by amplifying a chosen characteristic or repeating it to form a mass. Her exploration of material narratives and their latent potentials connects to a search for something that might emerge, moving intuitively from fabulation to fabrication. She explores an interest for popular science stories and the common ground that lies enclosed within the lithosphere.
Leena Kangaskoski graduated from the Royal College of Art, London in 2011. She currently lives and works in Helsinki, Finland and is a member of Association of Finnish Sculptors and MUU Artists’ Association.
