- BIO -
Emma Rönnholm is a visual artist based in Helsinki, Finland. She works with sculpture and installation, often featuring movement or other mechanical elements. Her artistic practise stems from a fascination for language, materials and processes, paired with a passion for mechanics and do-it-yourself.
Rönnholm graduated in 2011 from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied painting and sculpture. During her studies she participated in international workshops in Germany and Italy and longer student exchanges in Prague and Paris.
Since graduating she has held numerous solo and joint exhibitions, predominately in Helsinki but also in other parts of Finland (Turku, Tampere, Pori) and abroad (Italy, Germany, Slovakia and the Czech republic). Her works are found in the collections of the Saastamoinen Foundation, the city of Turku and the Amos Anderson museum in Helsinki. In 2017 she was nominated for the Fine Arts Academy of Finlands biannual art award.
