Blind soldiers are groping their way through a forest. Tight group is slowly shattered, leaving each man alone in the darkness.

Visual artist Outi Sunila (b. 1970) works mainly with video and installation art, experimenting with other media as well. For the past few years she has been focusing on both social and political themes in her works ? from the viewpoint of an individual.

Her works have been recently shown at exhibitions in MUU Gallery, Helsinki and S?rland?s Art Museum, Norway, as well as at festivals and screenings; FestArte Video Festival in Milan and Rome, Kakelhallen in Mariehamn and Waterpieces Festival in Riga. Sunila has works in collections of both Oulu and Helsinki Art Museums and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art. Outi Sunila (b. 1970) is currently living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She graduated in 2002 with an MFA from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and in 2005 with an MA from University of Art And Design, Helsinki.
