IIU SUSIRAJA: WITH A PAIR

iiu_susiraja_photography_self_portrait_lamondamagazine_1

Iiu Susiraja‘s self-portraits create mixed feeling. She places a broomstick beneath her tits, looks straight to the camera and puts together a wonderful concoction of confusion and realism. She ties a pair of heels to her thighs with duct tape and shots. It’s distress and it’s raw image; self-portraits fuelled by dark humour, as seen in “Self-Service”, where Iiu holds her belly on a tray. Morbid applause. Her goal is us to feel what she feels everyday.

Everyday drama and awkward situations; Iiu’s pictures talk about feminity and how we treat our body from a very non-sexual way. She hypnotically takes the piss out of it, stating that “in your own work, self-humiliation is allowed, but never humiliating others”. A dogma with an amazing outcome of this Finnish artist that is finishing her Fine Arts MA and plans an exhibition for May 2015 that we can’t wait to see.

  1. This is some of the best new photographic work I have seen written about in a long time. These images are stunning, provocative and beautifully gritty. Huge fan of this artist and her work now!
