Reija Meriläinen is a Helsinki based artist working with moving image, sculpture, and installations that combine the digital and physical. In their work, social tensions and power are linked to physical and material sensations. While visually alluring, their work often includes elements of violence and has a visceral sense of the body that is communicated through haptic materials. Meriläinen’s work has previously been shown in several group exhibitions in Finland and abroad such as ARS17 at Kiasma museum of contemporary art in Helsinki and States of Play: Roleplay Reality at FACT Liverpool, and in solo exhibitions such as EN GARDE in Helsinki’s HAM gallery and Fight or Flight in gallery Unknown Cargo in Stockholm.
