Hedi Jaansoo (1989) is an Estonian artist and a photographer based in Tallinn. She graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in Contemporary Art (MA, 2018) and Photography (BA, 2014). She also studied at Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway (2012/13). Jaansoo works with fragilities, weaknesses, tensions and beauties, among other – mainly small – things. Her recent work combines photography, flowers, textiles and vases, non-functional jewelry, unfinished thoughts and uncertain decisions, (be)longing and acceptance. She is inspired by grandmothers and tries not to harm the environment too much. She is a guest lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Arts.
