Anastasia Artemeva is a visual and relational artist, born in Russia, raised in Ireland, and based in Helsinki, Finland. Her work is developed through a process-oriented artistic practice, drawn from object making, performance art, art education, and research in human rights.
Martial Law is a site-specific project which re-imagines the WW1 trenches at a local Maunula park. The artist engaged in on-site dialogues with convicts doing community service to restore the trenches, residents of a nearby service home, and park visitors. A narrative interweaving facts, fiction and memories of war with thoughts of safety and confinement was created, and experienced by park visitors via an audio helmet.
