Artist Artor Jesus Inkerö (1989, Finland) lives in Amsterdam and works with moving image and photography. With the ‘holistic bodily project’ Inkerö attempts to transform himself to reflect the most generic version of contemporary masculinity. By adopting masculine codes and characteristics, Inkerö explores matters such as control, power, safety and privilege.
