Artist Statement of Sari Lievonen

Sari Lievonen`s art practice is concerned with sensing places and experiencing environments. She is especially interested in the concept of landscape and how that influences our urbanised thinking and everyday lives. For her the ongoing question is: what is our relation to landscape and how to combine the need for the urban to that of the ?natural?? The paradox is that we are attached to the one and long for the other. Furthermore, urban life with all its technological developments tends to create illusions of us being able to control ourselves as well as our environment (s). That is of course not the case. Both of the systems are very frangible and that is one of the characteristics that bring them closer together. Thus her practice is as much about living in an urban context as it is about surviving in less urban spaces and wilderness.
