Haikala’s works, especially the lens-based performaces by which she is most well-known, have a twist towards theatre, text or the history of art (more precisely historiography).
”My aim is to find out the flexibility and possibilities of performance art – thinking outside of the box and merging it’s boundaries. I believe that being honest with the personal experiences gives the possibility to explore the humanity in larger scale. I salute the traditions of avantgarde, feminism, dada, Fluxus and the likes – which I’ll try to add into my language and style.”
