Artist Statement

Pia Männikkö portrait

The starting point for my work is the body and space, whether intimate or architectural. Movement and volume of the human body is my source of reference and research. I am interested in spaces we occupy and the personal space of an individual, as well as ideas of micro- and macrocosms.

Mapping time and attempting to make its patterns visible is also an important concept within my work. Making as a process, creating objects that gradually grow and change is central to my practise. I hope that the playfulness that the working process can give me is accessible also in the end result.
