Jani Ruscica (b.1978) is an artist working with film, video, photography and other media.
Ruscica works collaboratively, his interest lies in how one defines one’s location, one’s placement in the world, and how this definition changes – continuously, if necessary – according to personal, cultural, representational or even scientific factors. Ruscica’s self reflexive works explore the intersection between cinema, video art, theatre and performance.
His recent exhibitions include 5th Momentum Biennial, Moss, Norway 2009, ‘Tracking traces’ KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, 2009, ‘Life Forms’ Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, 2009, as well as screenings in institutions such as Centre Pompidou, Paris, TATE Modern, London and MoMA, New York.
Ruscica is based in Helsinki and was educated at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London and at the Academy of Fine Art in Helsinki.
