To See the World, To Feel With Your Eyes

Eija-Liisa Ahtila

Eija-Liisa Ahtila (born 1959) works with video installations, photography and film. Her work often deals with the ways people relate to one another, the basic emotions shown in these contacts, and our fragility and vulnerability when con- fronted with suffering and difficulties. The images in Ahtila’s narratives have a painterly quality and focus on how stories unfold, both as sequences of images and within their spatial frameworks.

Eija-Liisa Ahtila lives and works in Helsinki.
