Henna Asikainen is a mixed-media artist, born in Joensuu, Finland.    

 

Henna uses different mediums to explore issues concerned with nature and the environment.  

 

Her work contributes to the debates around the complex ecological issues that surround these concepts and explores the poetics of our fundamental relationship with nature, the aesthetic value of nature and the experience from which these arise.  

 

Theoretically her work is informed by a specific interest in the concept of beauty and notions of trauma as well as a commitment to socially and politically engaged art practices.
