Jaanus Samma - Kauno Bienalė

Jaanus Samma


Jaanus Samma (b. 1982, Estonia) is a visual artist based in Tallinn, Estonis. His body of work includes photos, installations and videos with topics grounded in gender and queer studies. His current fields of interest include history, ethnography and museology as well as narratives used at the intersection of the three. In his most recent projects, he has explored the museum as a tool for establishing authentic histories and asserting cultural canons. In queering national heritage, he has found ways of broadening the perspectives on identity formation and offered alternative ways of contextualising the past.
