In her installations, videos and performances, Riikka Tauriainen is interested in ecology, postcolonial theories and gender issues. She navigates on the boundaries between art and science, between fact and fiction. In the series of works Hydrocommons she deals with hydrological phenomena and with a post-humanist world of ideas, in which she explores to what extent our kinship with other bodies can be understood as a deeply materialistic relationality. Tauriainen is working as a lecturer and mentor at art schools and universities in a transnational context. Among others at Zurich University of the Arts, F+F School of Art and Design Zurich, École de design et haute école d’art du Valais, University of Cologne, University of Potsdam, HGK FHNW Hyperwerk Basel and ETH Zurich, Art and Architecture.
