Elina Bry,  considers herself as a French/Finnish, both equally.

In 2018 she gained her MFA at Glasgow School of Art. 

As a multidisciplinary and collaborator she moves in between writing, performance, video, photography, drawing and etching; often combined, communicating to each other.

Communication in between mediums is an essential part of my practice as each medium has its own strength in the development of my work. I am currently exploring the weaknesses of the body as a medium, considering the inner as a tool. By that, I explore the unexpected, what is already there, model it and work in collaboration with the instability of my body. It is essential that I don’t cause any harm as I want to challenge my body with the everyday, the known, in order to give a stage and witness what is already there. I use my voice to portrait the inner of my body, twisting the tubes to found the different tones. Far from being pleasant, I engage with the uncanniness we all have. I see language and translation as a medium, not only spoken or written but translation in cultural behaviors. The ones we are taught from an early age and don’t realize they are part of us until we encounter an unexpected manner. I play around with the cultural differences I observe and found inspiration with my interlocutor.

Autobiography becomes my methodology but I am attentive for it not to become the subject of my work. It combines different tools and methods, such as performance, storytelling, stage making and my body. These are all the methods which are combined in order to create my methodology, my tool box, my practice. Playing with the undefined borders in between my work and my personal life, I put myself at risk; but why shouldn’t I.
