Eija-Liisa Ahtila is a Finnish contemporary visual artist and filmmaker. In early works, she experimented with narrative storytelling in her films and cinematic installations, dealing with issues at the centre of personal relationships such as teenage sexuality, family relationships, mental disintegration and death. Later on, she focused more on the investigation of processes of perception and attribution of meaning. Her work is conceptually organised around the construction of image, language, narrative and space, and she uses large- scale installations with multiple channel projections on multiple screen constructions to break the tradition of cinematic perspective.
