MERI LINNA (b. 1985, SE/FI) favours collaboration as a method of working. Her main collaborative partnership goes under the name Harrie Liveart.
“Harrie L” is a third person who exists in the shared mind of Meri Linna and Saija Kassinen, and who has been developing as an identity since 2008. Together the artists explore the possibilities inherent to fictive and non fictive entities. The embodiment of Harrie appears as work that employs the bodies of Linna and Kassinen or of the visiting audience.
