1978 Born in Savonlinna (FI)

Jani Ruscica approaches his subjects like an anthropologist or sociologist, posing questions about our very being in the world — who we are, why we are what we are and what it| all means. He is interested in places, cultural identities and how we|define and communicate personal belonging in an increasingly mono-cultural and global society. The work of Ruscica explores the intersection between cinema, video art, theatre and performance. Recent exhibitions include: Helsinki Art Museum Meilahti, Finland; Found in Translation - Chapter L, Casino Luxembourg; KW Kunstwerke Berlin, Germany; 6th Liverpool Biennial, 2010, 5th Momentum Biennial, Moss, Norway; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland; Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden. He has also had screenings of his work in institutions including Tate Modern, London, Centre Pompidou, Paris and MoMA, New York.
