INTRODUCTION

I am interested in intuitively envisaged exchanges and interactions between the visual and media arts with other disciplines, such as performing arts and technology. The themes of my work revolve around perception of reality, individual and communal behavior, and communication. I am fascinated and disturbed by human beings, and mesmerized and puzzled by moving images, moving bodies and objects. I work with cross-disciplinary narrative structures that explore and question the union of content, medium and context.

Over the last years I have created media installation works combining sculptures and moving image with dance, dramaturgy, mechanics and electronics. I have also been directing performances, dance pieces and short film projects. Further I have worked in several internationally touring theater and dance productions as a video artist and performed as a dancer for other choreographers.

I hold Master of Fine Arts degrees from both the University of Barcelona, sculpture department (2004) and the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Time and Space department (2009). In addition, I have done studies on contemporary dance. I was born in Catalonia, and I have lived and worked in Helsinki since 2004. I have shown my work, solo projects or in collaborations with others, in galleries, theater stages and side specific locations in Catalonia, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Iceland, Japan, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

In 2012, I received the Grant for Young Artists by the Finnish Art Association. In 2013, I received the half a year artistic working grant by the Finnish Cultural Foundation. In 2015, I received a one year artistic working grant by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland. In 2015 I received the AVEK Prize. From the beginning of 2016, I am working with a three years artist working grant also by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

Text by Turku Biennial curator Silja Lehtonen: In a sound proof room, three characters attempt to communicate. The three preliminary prototypes represent hypothetical innovations as if yet to be released. They provide options for transpersonal existence, protein supply and physical permanency. The characters are talking through abstract forms of audible language at the same time pretending to be aware of themselves and the others. The installation stages tensions and distortions between reality and artificiality, subject and object, understanding and misunderstanding.

IN THE AIR


Media installation / original loop duration: 8 minutes / 2017 
Galería Max Estrella / Madrid (SP)
Collective exhibition: Return Flight Ticket / Curated by Nerea Ubieto 
Photo documentation: Arantxa Boyero
With the support of: CPR Curatorial Project for Research

Fragment of the text by exhibition curator Nerea Ubieto: Anna Estarriola presents an staged and immersive piece that invites the viewer to engage into a fragmented narration, happening inside an airplane.  The intimate and darkened atmosphere emphasizes the dreamy-like setting of the gallery space, almost as if entering a memory where few referents have vanished. On board we find several sculpted figures that depict humans of different constitutions and ages, with which the viewer can sit and listen to the only speaking character. On the screen, an apparent flight attendant - performed by the artist herself - unfolds a message. Sometimes she seemingly borrows attendant formalities, sometimes she departs from them. The content of her discourse - close to the absurd - suggests a pulse between the ordinary and the profound, inviting the viewer to reflect around subjects such as the nothingness, the awaiting, the emptiness and the ways we inhabit transitional spaces, trying to connect with the others and with ourselves.

Gallerie Anhava (project space) / Helsinki (FI)

Actor: Alexander Komlosi

Photo documentation: Ari Karttunen / EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art
Fragment of the text by Hanna Huitu: The work addresses issues of replication and reproduction. Specially constructed in the gallery’s basement space, it considers the thematic of understanding and communication and is based on the experience of stepping into a cinematic scene to encounter a different, produced reality. The video piece is part of an entity constructed in the space with a screen, rows of seats and a narrator figure front of the screen. The narrator, composed of the elements of a sculpture and a video, is a partly two and three-dimensional figure, commenting on, translating and interpreting for the audience not only the work itself but also the situation of displaying it. The narrator thus reproduces at the same time the video displayed in the space.

STAGED 

Solo exhibition / Media installations / 2017
Pori Art Museum / Pori (FI)
Curator: Anni Venäläinen 
Sound designer: Joonas Pehrsson
Technician: Jarkko Montonen
Actor (voice over narrator): Alexander Komlosi
Photo documentation: Erkki Valli-Jaakola and Kati Kunnas-Holmström, Porin taidemuseo / Martin Jäger / Heikki Westergård
With the support of: Pori Art Museum and Taike
   
Fragment of the text by Anni Venäläinen: Pursuing the search for ultimate truth, a delusive set of three dimensional sculptures contemplate both the transcendent and absurd. The works, which outline passages between wisdom and turmoil, reflect on the strategies one uses to grasp both, from the everyday to the universal. The project – where micro and macro events are related – talks about our influence on forthcoming history, and intertwines endings with infinity.

Estarriola’s exhibition Staged consists of sculptures where audio-visual technology blends with hyper-realistic and surrealist expression. The largest piece in the exhibition is an installation called The System that stages the illusion of (participation in) democracy – where one’s personal contribution to decision- making becomes blurred. The piece utilizes the structure of a parliamentary meeting: it is staged as a democratic event where the future of humanity is under analysis. The show will also include a sample of the artist's earlier work.

A post apocalyptic message arrives. It comes from the future. It is delivered in a meeting. It appears so it can be seen and heard.

PHENOMENAL

Phenomenon as an observable event involves the act of becoming perceptible through immediate experience. This exhibition of media installations presents staged circumstances, reflecting on the performative side effects of coming into being and vanishing away. "Phenomenal" gives shape to the appearance and disappearance of the presence. The passage through these two definite states becomes alluring, hilarious, morbid, absurd and blurry. In the double-sided evolution of humankind, in which knowledge and stupidity are developing simultaneously, humans have a great power to dramatically modify environments, but ultimately cannot avoid death. The installations reflect on the delusion, the tragedy and the beauty involved in the inescapable.

SHOW

Performance / duration: 40 minutes / 2015
Sinne Gallery / Helsinki (FI)
Direction and performance: Anna Estarriola
Lighting design: Anna Pöllänen
Sound: Kristian Ekholm
Poster photo: Jukka Kiistala
Camera: Martin Jäger
Photo documentation: Kia Orama  
With the support of: Samuel Huber Foundation

Fragment of Markus Åstöm's text about the performance: SHOW is a piece in which desires, expectations and concerns are brought into light and meticulously studied using voice, body movement and moving image. How do one find strategies to communicate with one self and with others? In SHOW the protagonist is a scattered being. Accompanied by its own subconscious it is confronted with a series of disorienting events. Confused and lost entities and spirits appear in form of analog and digital projections. The narrative is nurtured by a growing turmoil in the main character. It dissolves into a self amplifying maelstrom of ego-debris and perversions; to find its way through its own inner void it visualizes the invisible and projects new images to which it can relate to and understand.

THE SCENE & OTHER WORKS

Media installations / 2015
Exhibition Laboratory / Helsinki (FI) / 2015
Collective exhibition: Cinematic Senses / Curated by Praxis students
My works have been curated by Tintti Timonen
Photo documentation: Jukka Kiistala and Petri Summanen 
With the support of: Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki

Text by the collective of curators of the exhibition: In "Cinematic Senses", film is not only shown as an audiovisual art form. The focus of the exhibition is a multifaceted sensorial experience, where borders between media are transgressed. Aspects of cinema are explored through the materiality of painterly and sculptural practices, as well as by the movement of the visitors through the installations.

The concept of "haptic visuality” as explored by cinema theorist Laura U. Marks describes how the act of watching can still evoke for instance the experience of actual touch or smell. The image becomes an imprint of a real physical event. The exhibition is curated by Praxis Master's Programme students. Each of the six curators of "Cinematic Senses" has invited one or several artists. The departure point of this group exhibition has been a close dialogue between curators and artists.

Humans search ways to reach some kind of renown, praise, honor and immortality, through their physical and intellectual achievements. The affection for glory can be strong, and in order to obtain it, many can undertake tasks with great effort, risk and sacrifice.


This exhibition of media installations includes visionary contemplations, and speculations on how some divine things could work, in both hyper realistic and altered proportions. The installations reflect on how intimate and universal topics are perceived and categorized, on mankind’s desires to embrace and conduct reality, as well as on one’s limited power and helplessness.

As a collection of short stories, Related to Glory is composed by a set of self contained scenes, which wonder and react to timeless concerns such as the search for ultimate meaning, the pursuit of gratification, the sense of curiosity, the inevitability of isolation and the inescapability of death.

VENTRILOQUIZED 

Performance / duration: 30 minutes / 2014
premiere: Mad House / Helsinki (FI)
Photo documentation: Antti Ahonen  

Borrowing the esthetics of a ventriloquist show, Anna Estarriola and a representation of her, together perform an existential duet that speculates about perception and the side effects of being under pressure. The piece involves visual illusions, text and physical movement. Through the interaction with humanized objects and chameleonic creatures, the performer creates a dialogue on common human concerns.

A large soft toy-like sculpture is exhibited, squeezed inside the window gallery. A thinking bubble reflects the character’s thoughts about being displayed. The installed scene refers to the artist’s identification with her work, and to the site-specific exhibiting conditions in Alkovi Gallery.

THE LIVING IN THREE ACTS

Solo exhibition / Media installations / 2013

Photos: Perttu Saksa, Anna Estarriola

The Living in Three Acts introduces five characters, who each perform their own mini solo. One with multiple troubles, one perplexed by his own image, and one permanently illuminated. One with glittering aspirations, and one with the power to spin endlessly. Then, in the three simultaneous acts of a mini performance set on three stage-like tables, the five characters all appear, interact and finally fade away.

GODDAMN MIND CHANGER

Goddamn Mind Changer is a looping drama formed by installation works. It takes place in a stage-like gallery, where you are welcome. It is a sequence of shifting images, a score of metaphorical actions performed by articulated artifacts and video projections.

Goddamn Mind Changer refers to individual and communal forms of handling human circumstances. With the series of installations I talk about pathetic criticism, exaggerated ambition, random enlightenment, nothingness, mechanisms for giving it all and hiding it back again, blending in strategies, temperamental stillness and see-through brainstorming. Goddamn Mind Changer is made with acting and dancing performers, electronics and motors, artifcial hair, cypresses, fabrics, lamps, papers, pillows, salads and wood among others.

WITHIN
Performance and film / Film duration: 35 minutes / 2011
Direction: Anna Estarriola and Johanna Ketola
Co-production: Spielart Festival, Anna Estarriola and Johanna Ketola
Premier in Germany: Spielart Festival / Munich (GER)
Premiere in Finland: MUU Gallery / Helsinki (FI)
Photography: Johanna Ketola
 
In the piece the artists explore the co-existence of staged realities emerged in quotidian surroundings, in which they understand the city as the scenery and people who inhabit it as part of that scenery. They activate city spaces with a group of Munich people, who become performers in the subtle staged scenes camouflaged as everyday life. The scenes are made into a film. Within film has been exhibited independently in several venues since 2011.

IN and OTHERS
Dance performance / duration: 30 minutes / 2010

Premiere in Catalonia: Festival Mapa / Pontós (CAT-SP)
Co-production: Zodiak - Center For New Dance and Festival Mapa
Photography: Johanna Tirronen

In and Others is based in wonders about the origin and development of one's behavior until it is pulled out to the outer. The thematic scope of the piece contains domestic approaches to the unknown, looks at the visible in us guessing the invisible happening inside, and enquires into scientific knowledge and non factual believes. Departing from the compromise to be objective or right, the piece looks for the translation of the inner into forms, constructing metaphor of what is rooted inside us and reacts to the external, through movement, presence and image.

This is a still and a moving place. This is an investigation about human and mechanical motion. This is a sketch. This is a stage. These are six solos and a gathering in a domestic jungle. The exhibition is formed by seven works, six of them are solos and one is a group scene where they all meet in a room, in a staged domestic jungle, a small-sized representation of a world, where they are forced to exist together. The works explore how we bear life and how we position ourselves according to it, while being alone or with other humans. The artist transformed views upon how we move in life into a selection of choreographed movement scores, performed by humans, artifacts and dolls.

THE HAPPIEST
Dance performance / duration: 30 minutes / 2008
Premier: Cable Factory / Helsinki (FI)
Concept and direction: Anna Estarriola
Performers: Anna Estarriola, Jukka Tarvainen
Lighting design: Anna Pöllänen
Premiere in Finland: Cable Factory, Helsinki, 2008
Co-production: Finnish Academy of Fine Arts and Anna Estarriola
Language: English
Photo documentation: Jyri Pitkänen

“The Happiest” is based on the physicality of human behavior in relation to a given or self-created environment in which someone happens to exist. The piece goes through multiple try outs that aim to overlap imposition and free will. “The Happiest” attempts to create living moving images and translate mental landscapes into physical forms. As a catalogue of life scenes it contains crappy speeches, self slavery, conceptual butterflies, innocent destruction, huge statements mechanical order, dancing monsters, silver fields, electronic music, reconstruction and tasks. “The Happiest” says things such as: “Life is like a butterfly, sometimes it is funny, sometimes it doesn't exist” and “I will be here until this ends”.
