HELI HILTUNEN’S works create pathways between the present and the past. She provides clues to the audience by forming routes in a kind of map, and by offering perspectives for a closer look. Her paintings, collages and photographs are entities of sensory perception and the memory, understanding and replication of seeing. They are combined and linked by viewing, remembering and the aim of creating a joint interface for the artist and the viewer. Her works may be exuberant and succulent or highly reduced, but they all have in common beauty and a yearning for it.

Heli Hiltunen (b.1960, Heinola) lives and works in Helsinki. She has held several solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions both in Finland and abroad, including at Galleri Andersson/Sandström in Stockholm and Umeå, Galerie Birthe Laursen in Paris, Stadtgalerie in Kiel, Amos Anderson Art Museum in Helsinki, Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, and EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art. Her works are included in several Finnish and Nordic collections, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, the Helsinki Art Museum (HAM), Saastamoinen Foundation’s Art Collection, the Wihuri Art Collection, the Niemistö Collection, and Sara Hildén Art Museum. Hiltunen received the prestigious Ars Fennica Award in 2001.
