Profile Information

Performance Discipline
Visual Action Artist
After living his childhood in Stockholm suburbs Peter Rosvik in 1982 arrived to the Swedish Finnish countryside in Finland with his family. Before enrolling Fine art school in Nykarleby (SKIN) he studied to a chef. Since 1994 his work has been exhibited in Finland, Scandinavia and from the millennium shift internationally.
Peter Rosvik has a long experience of working with crossover art strategies in diverse cultural communities. He is one of the founders of the contemporary art project space Platform (founded 2000) in Vaasa, Finland. He works in a variety of media, including fine art, video, sound, and installations. Since 2007 he focuses on performance art exploring what he calls ‘the often specious distinctions between the artificial and the natural of being human’. Concepts that underpin cultural construction, such as belonging, marginalization, dialogue and other forms of socio cultural phenomena appear to fascinate him.
By combining material and immaterial elements of analogue, electronic, and digital displays his artworks extensively explores various combinations of visual, noise and body expressions as humanity. Peter originates performances that play with conceptions of art as cultural memory and art as personal conceptions of identity. His current artworks focus on statements of embodied experiences of human exclusion and inclusion in society and culture. In collaboration with PhD Hannah Kaihovirta-Rosvik he creates performative lectures where art as experience and art as knowledge are elaborated through diverse forms of artistic meaning making.
