Catalogue Note

During the whole process of creation Niemi works alone photographing, acting and building her characters. However, it is important to note that these are not self-portraits but rather, as she puts it, personas that disappear when no one is looking. It is a way of portraying one of today’s most controversial dichotomies, who we are and how we want to be perceived. Niemi uses her characters as a way of escaping and achieving a balance between reality and fiction, always merging darkness with humour through the use of visual stories.
