Kemê pellicer

Kemê is a primarily a visual artist based in Helsinki who works with photography, performance, Installation and text, often hybridising them, In a process that explores our nature and artificiality, the complexity of our construction and the constructions we inhabit, our role in it, not predefined or static. She investigates concepts like memory, representation, symbols, mutability, the unconscious and its shadows., fascinated by the use of art as an Alchemy or magic tool for re-creation. Her artistic practice is currently focused on her multidisciplinary project and research "Villi Akka's calling", based on the wild woman’ archetype within the frame of tales, myths and storytelling tradition. Which addresses contemporary life, challenging the negative image given historically by the binary opposition’s system. Kemê also cooperates in several initiatives regarding cultural diversity and best practices in arts and culture such as the group Critical Friends, by the Nordic Council of Ministers (project: “An inclusive cultural sector in the Nordics” led by Arts Council Norway) or the Independent Center and association "Globe Art Point." in Helsinki.
