Natalie Sutinen (b.1972) is an Finnish artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. She has studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Stockholm (M.F.A -05) and Gerrit Rietveld Academie of Art – Amsterdam.
Natalie Sutinen is working mainly with film included in sculptural installations. An interest in what is real and authentic runs lika a thread through her work where the filmprocess becomes an investigation into our personal relationship with all images as a means of discovering ourselves. Except for her low-key and unassuming teaching in perception psychology that reveals no dramatic truths, but it urges all of us to be humble before all contradictory statements about what is real and authentic.
Sutinen has received several work grants and costly project scholarships from Konstnärsnämnden, residency grants from the Academy of Art; Hôtel Chevillion, Grez-sur-Loing – France, Cite International des Arts – Paris and she has been awarded Gerhard och Peggy Bonniers Stipendium among others. She has shown her work at the Umeå Konsthall, Galleri Tegen2 –Stockholm, Rostrum –Malmö, Halmstad konstmuseum, Galleri Öst -Konstakademien pat Fredsgatan 12 –Stockholm, Gallery Niklas Belenius –Stockholm, Växjö Konsthall –Småland, Haninge konsthall –Stockholm, Faust Rich – Stockholm, Wiesenburg –Berlin, RIFF International filmfestival –USA.
