About

Hei, it's me - Suvi!

I'm Suvi Solkio (née Aarnio), a multidisciplinary artist, a grassroot powerhouse and a self-proclaimed expert in failure. I live and work in an old village shop called Pineapple Paradise nearby Turku, Finland.

What makes me thrilled to bits? Intelligent scandals, being cleverly cheated, girlish humour and the expertice by experience. Whereas elitism, labelling, middle-aged patriarchy, bad manners and unquestionable norms really make my blood boil. With my work, i aim at amusing myself, entertaining the others and creating space for the collective, cathartic and carnevalesque involvement. And in doing so, i often employ the unorthodox artistic methods such as embroidery, burlesque and social engagement.

Since graduating in 2001 (Tampere Polytechnic / School of Art and Media / Public Art), I've worked from public to private sector as an artist, curator and coordinator. In addition to Finland, i've presented my works in Ireland, Sweden, UK, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia and the United States.
