Terike Haapoja is a Finnish visual artist. With a specific focus in encounters with nature, death and other species, Haapojas work investigates the existential and political boundaries of our world. Haapojas work raises questions about the existential basis radical otherness provide for being, and about how different structures of exclusion and discrimination function as foundations for identity and culture. Haapoja approaches the previously mentioned themes by building up large projects, often realized in the forms of installations, related publications and participatory acts. Haapoja contributes regularly to Finnish and international art publications. She was the editor of mustekala.info issue After the Animal (2013), co-editor of special issue Animal of Esitys-journal (2013) and co-editor of the Finnish Bioart Societys publication Field_Notes: From Landscape to Laboratory (2013). Haapoja represented Finland in the Venice Biennale in 2013 with a solo show in the Nordic Pavilion.
