Sinkkonen (b. 1983) is a multidisciplinary visual artist who combines methods of community, place-based and media art in her work. Sinkkonen’s special expertise is public art works and community and socially influential art projects such as the community and environmental art project KaiPuu and the interactive media art work I see you.
Sinkkonen works have been seen in many different festivals and exhibitions both in Finland and abroad. Sinkkonen’s orientation in the field of community art and applied art is motivated by an interest in influencing society and a desire to take art processes to places where they are not usually experienced.
Sinkkonen has implemented multi-disciplinary projects in various art groups and has actively influenced the Turku art field, e.g. as a founding member of community art Cooperative Canadantuijat and Holz Kollektiv. In 2021 Sinkkonen was involved in Huoneiden kirja – production, which was awarded the State Prize for Performing Arts in 2021. For 2022 Sinkkonen was elected as the Chairwoman of the Board of the Turku Artists’ Association.
