Alexander Salvesen (b.1990 in Turku) is a Swedish-speaking artist and curator living in Finland. He primarily works with light in different forms and focuses in his works often on colour, space and shape, and especially their relations to each other and to the viewer. Salvesens’ work springs from perceptions of our surrounding nature and from its phenomena, but also from present political and socio economic situations. Currently he is interested in the complexity of our perception, the puzzling concept of time and our obsession with speed and travel in an age of mass extinction and polycrises. A deep awareness and worry of the ongoing climate crisis and ecological collapse can be found throughout his works. His works have been exhibited in galleries, museums and light art festivals in Finland and abroad.
