Pilvi Takala, Aalto University's artist-in-residence for the year 2018, showcases a selection of her video works. The artist will be present to tell about her work at the opening on May 22nd.

Business Outsider includes a selection of Takala’s acclaimed works in which corporate environments provide stages for playful interventions. By acting in disguise or adopting various performative roles – a trainee at the multinational consulting firm Deloitte being the most well- known example – Takala is persistently investigating the social structures and rituals that govern our everyday lives as communal beings.

Pilvi Takala is known for her long-term work in advancing the creative palette of socially engaged arts. Living and working between Helsinki and Berlin, she is one of the most internationally recognised Finnish artists. Takala will present her latest works in a solo exhibition Second Shift that opens in Kiasma (Helsinki) on August 23rd.
