Mari Keski-Korsu (mkk) is an transdisciplinary artist. She explores how ecological and socio-economical changes manifest in everyday life. How macrocosm becomes microcosm and visa versa? Mainly, the starting point is in location, a place and relations to it and collaborations with different kinds of communities, individuals and species. Keski-Korsu’s permaculturic practice can be for example interventions, documentary, performance, virtual worlds and installations. She is interested in relations in between art, activism, politics and science. The works has been exhibited in Europe and in several other countries around the world. She collaborates with artist groups, researchers as well as organises and curates different types of projects. Her current work has been influenced greatly by Frontiers in Retreat, a 5-year international collaboration project constructed around artist residencies. She holds a MA from University of Arts and Design Helsinki (Medialab) and BA in visual arts from Polytechnic of Western Lapland. In 2016, she co-directed Pixelache Festival 2016 – ‘Interfaces for Empathy’.
