Lena Séraphin is a visual artist and researcher based in Helsinki. Her artistic practice consists of collaborative writings and visual works that place emphasis on display as a dramaturgic event. She holds a Master of Arts in Fine Art from Goldsmiths’ College, University of London (1997) and a Doctor of Arts from Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Helsinki (2017).
Her dissertation The Don Quixote Complex and Investigations into Fictionality is based on observations of the artist herself as a varying assembly of roles/identities. During research Séraphin created a double (or Doppelgänger) as a figuration and an artistic device in order to explore the imaginary as a knowledgeable environment.
