Josefina Nelimarkka

Working between London and Helsinki, Nelimarkka’s practice combines documentary, textiles, digital archives and ‘wet paintings’ through the recurring theme of nature that is often the origin of her artistic and scientific investigations. Fascinated with the notion of continuous, sometimes indeterminable change, her spatial configuration and multidisciplinary, site-sensitive works investigate materia, time and the language of colour as spatiality in which arts and sciences merge into ‘sensitivities, fleeting experiences and interactive places’.

Graduating with an MA in painting from the RCA in 2016, Nelimarkka also holds qualifications in architecture and exhibited at the Finnish institute in London in 2016.
