Teo Ala-Ruona


Teo Ala-Ruona (b. 1990) is a Finnish performance artist whose work focuses on speculative fiction in forms of performances that combine somatofictional practices, movement and various vocal techniques. He explores topics of sex, queer ecology, toxicity and gender. By using his own body as a site for the various speculative stories to take place, he experiments with how, through fiction, he can transform himself, as well as the perspectives from which others look at his body. His work has recently been shown in Organ Vida festival in Zagreb, The Vilnius Biennial of Performance Art, The Finnish National Gallery Kiasma, The Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, VEGA|ARTS in Copenhagen and HAM Art Museum in Helsinki among others.
