A visual artist, composer and performer working across many different media, Hanna Tuulikki specialises in creating vocal sound. She is especially intrigued by traditional sound-making where music emerges from people’s relationship with the land, as in her own Finnish heritage. Recently, gesture and dance have become equally important in her work. In SOURCEMOUTH : LIQUIDBODY (2016), she describes the journey of an Indian river, using the eye-and-hand gestures of traditional Keralan theatre. Much of Tuulikki’s work relates to Scottish culture and landscape. In her short film, cloud-cuckoo-island (2016), Tuulikki plays the part of Sweeney, the deranged Irish King who lived out his madness on the Hebridean Isle of Eigg, believing himself to be a bird.
Hanna Tuulikki (born 1982, Sussex) lives and works in Glasgow. Tuulikki studied at The Glasgow School of Art.
