KATI ROOVER

Kati Roover is multidisciplinary artist living and working in Helsinki. In her works she approaches environmental changes through poetic imagination, creating works that combine her research with a broad range of perspectives, e.g. human-non-human interaction, natural sciences, ecological and decolonial thinking, deep listening, mythical storytelling, feminist new materialisms, elemental cinema and documentary essay film. She works with moving image, sound, photography, text and installations.
