Anni Hanén (b. 1981) lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. The reflections of her own childhood combined with her child´s view creates a visual dialogue between mother and son, past and present. This language they create together expresses emotions, remembrance and memories. Since 2004 she has participated in solo and group exhibitions and has received various grants.
