Mattila, Mimmi

My interest in languages and linguistics form a base for my artistic production. I work mainly with sculpture and installations consisting of collections of objects. I consider my works as exercises in semiotics and the linguistic aspects often function as guidelines and an inner logic I use during the working process.
