Kati Roover is a multidisciplinary artist who approaches environmental changes through poetic imagination. Her works are often based on different ways of forming knowledge as well as the fleeting concept of a place in the midst of massive environmental changes. She creates works that combine her research with a broad range of perspectives, e.g. human-non-human interaction, natural sciences, ecological and decolonial thinking, deep listening, mythical storytelling, feminist new materialisms, and documentary essay film. She works with moving image, sound, photography, text and installations.
Roover received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Fine Arts (University of the Arts Helsinki) in 2016. Her recent exhibitions include What is it like to be an animal?, Kunsthalle Seinäjoki (2020), Finland, Fragile Times, Galerie im Körnerpark, Berlin (2020) Coexistence, Contemporary Museum Kiasma, Helsinki, Finland (2019), And Tomorrow And exhibition in Index, Stockholm, Sweden (2018).
