Born in Helsinki, Finland.
Based in Brighton, UK.
Anni Kruus combines video, dance, installation and sculpture in her practice. Her work explores the reciprocal relationships between body and space, and how each is affected by the other in the process of movement. She invites the viewer to question defined boundaries between known entities - human and nature; physical and mental; inside and outside.
Anni has been awarded a Master of Arts in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London, and a Bachelor of Arts in Photographic Art at the University of South Wales in Newport, Wales.
