Hanna Tuulikki

Born 1982 in Brighton, England
Lives in Glasgow, Scotland


Hanna Tuulikki is a British-Finnish artist, composer and performer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Her practice spans performance and audiovisual installation, blending vocal music, choreography, costume and drawing. In her work, she investigates how the body communicates beyond and before words to tell stories through imitation, vocalisation and gesture. With a largely place-responsive process, she considers how bodily relationships and folk histories are encoded within specific environments, ecologies and places. Her recent work engages with what it means to live on a damaged planet, proposing contemporary queer ritual as a way to process the trauma that comes with ecological awareness.
