Eija-Liisa Ahtila (Hämeenlinna, Finland, 1959) has long been considered a master of the multimedia form. Her work is conceptually organized around the construction of image, language, narrative, and space, and she has often probed individual identity and the boundaries of the subject in relation to the external world. Exploring the fragile inner life of her protagonists and the tenuous line separating fantasy from reality, Ahtila’s narratives provide tales of disturbing intimacy, loss, repression, and neuroses and are often focused on the unsettling emotions at the heart of personal relationships.
