sharing fruit and other
intimate encounters

Sharing fruit and other intimate encounters is a photographic body of work consisting of scannograps and photographs. The project ponders about fruits, skins, flowers, insects, weekday breakfasts, brushing teeth, vournability and closeness. In Nivalainen’s artistic process the camera works like a sensitive skin trough which the external world and internal experiences are allowed to meet. Essential themes are intimacy, sense of safety and care which the artist investigates trough their immediate material surroundings.
