She has curated and coordinated various extradisciplinary and collaborative projects in urban spaces, as “Aquatopia – the children’s research submarine – Graz/ Vienna 2013, “KoCA Inn” – Weimar 2009.

In order to achieve this, classes open up spaces for risk-taking adventures, including corporeal experiences and critical wanderings on daily issues. She holds a PhD and an MFA in public art from the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.

In 2011 she was awarded a year studio at the Atelier Rondo, Graz and participated in the exhibitions ‘Rondorama’, ‘Contemporary views’ and ‘Round/ about’.

Inka is a Finnish artist specialized in painting and installations, currently living and working in Graz. In her works she explores the harmony between beauty and the grotesque, sacred and dirt. Physicality and movement are also often present in her works. “When I work, I search for the state of flow. I explore the feeling when ego and rationality disappears and all that is left is rhythm and movement. I try to organize the experiences of dissolution.”
