Elina Brotherus

Elina Brotherus was born in 1972 in Helsinki, she lives and works in Helsinki and Avallon.

Elina Brotherus works in photography and moving image. Her work has been alternating between autobiographical and art-historical approaches. Photographs dealing with the human figure and the landscape, the relation of the artist and the model, gave way to images on subjective experiences in her recent bodies of work Annonciation and Carpe Fucking Diem. In her current work she is revisiting Fluxus event scores and other written instructions for performance-oriented art of the 1950s-70s.

Elina Brotherus has an MA degree in Photography from the University of Art and Design Helsinki (now Aalto University) and an MSc in Chemistry from the University of Helsinki. She started exhibiting internationally in 1997.

Her work has been given prominence in numerous art and photography books and magazines. She has published nine monographs, most recently Playground, a limited edition hand-made box featuring 80 works from her exhibition at Serlachius Museum, Finland. She has been awarded, among others, Carte blanche PMU, France, in 2017, the Finnish State Prize for Photography in 2008, and the Prix Nièpce in 2005.
