Dear Artist,

Erävaara, Taina;
Open Access
Published: 01 Jan 2022
Country: Finland

Dear Artist, is about becoming a visual and conceptual artist. It is an artistic journey, from theory to practice. The text explores an iterative cycle of an artistic series called Journal intime (2022 –). This ongoing series, Journal intime, is based on private visual and textual archives of an artist, her diaries. This Thesis is an attempt to formulate a diaristic practice, a dialogue between past and present, towards a series of emotional and conceptual installations. Journal intime is based on a concept of a camera as a psychological tool, and photographs as tactile and emotional objects. Dear Artist, is mapping out thinking processes around various photographic and visual practices, like auto-portraits and Polaroids, auto-fiction, and autobiographical writing. It is about a private artistic process which is in dialogue with contemporary art, other artists and theoretical concepts like archive and subjectivity.
