Nina Kurtela is a visual artist with a practice in contemporary dance, performance and choreography. Working in the field of visual arts, but also working as a dancer and performer, her work often takes shape of live art. Her practice is mostly based on influences and reflections to the social surrounding and impact of the specific environment or conditions where the work takes place. It does not exclude any medium and with its conceptual approach gives a chance to any production means to be realised, but nevertheless she often deals with mediums such as sculpture, installation, video and what interests her the most is creation of live and interactive settings like happenings or events.
