Terike Haapoja is a visual artist based in New York. With a specific focus in encounters with nature, death and other species, Haapoja's work investigates the existential and political boundaries of our world. Haapoja's work raises questions about how different structures of exclusion and discrimination function as foundations for identity and culture. The notion of a world that is deeply rooted in the physicality and co-existence of beings and their multiple lifeworlds is at the core of Haapoja's politically and ethically driven practice. Collaborations with author Laura Gustafsson under the name Gustafsson&Haapoja explores problems arising from the anthropocentric worldview. Haapoja's work has been exhibited widely in solo and group shows internationally.
