Inari Kiuru is a Finnish-born artist and designer who works with objects, jewellery and installation. She migrated from Finland to Australia in 1995, worked as a graphic designer and graduated with Honours in Object Based Practice from RMIT University in 2013.
She lives in Melbourne and has participated in curated group exhibitions in Australia, USA, Estonia and Germany, including the most recent '5X7: early career Australian makers' in Gallery Funaki, Melbourne, April-May 2016.
In 2014 she received the judges’ commendation in the Emerging Artist category of the Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery.
My current body of work is a meditation on the beauty and melancholy of changing light over urban and semi-industrial landscapes, and an intimate study – a love song – for the materials which are of these environments: steel, glass, concrete and iron.
