This is the homepage of Matilda Löytty, a contemporary artist / visual culture specialist from Finland. Löytty started her career as an experimental mixed media painter, but she has since been involved with environmental art and installations. Lately, in addition to her more traditional art practices, she has been involved with participatory public art and urban interventions. She is interested in cross-cultural discourses and the intersection of art, society and history.
Löytty has been exhibiting and working on artistic projects and research across borders in Finland, other Nordic countries, Portugal and Namibia. Currently she lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. She graduated with an MA degree in Nordic Visual Studies and Art Education from Aalto University, her thesis, Art of the Intangible History – Negotiating the possibilities of arts-based research for learning processes in Finnish-Namibian Museums, investigated learning, cross-cultural museums, history and post-colonial theories through art as a platform.
