Christina's practice is focused on other-than-human life forms (plants, animals, bacteria) and attempts to re-negotiate the relations humans have with their environment. Departing from her work with honeybees, the long term project Melliferopolis - bees in urban contexts - was founded in 2012. In collaboration with Ulla Taipale a large body of work has been realized (http://melliferopolis.net). In 2017, Christina started to also work under the name “Institute for Relocation of Biodiversity”, an initiative concerned with loss of habitats. Symbolic, absurd solutions are proposed to save the planet and its non-human inhabitants, like the mollusc Pinna nobilis, endemic in the Mediterranean Sea. Another branch of Christina's art practice is the work on cracks and the ancient Japanese craft of mending them with gold: a technique called Kin Tsugi. The classic technique with ceramic objects, allowed her to work in earthquake regions with restoration processes both physical and mental. In consequence, she explored the aspect of healing taking the concept into the microbiology lab employing bacteria and fungi.
Christina's work is informed by her scientific background and includes life installations, performances, exhibitions, workshops, lectures and publications. She obtained a PhD in chemistry and is member of the Bioart Society, Finland. She has a post-Doc position at the Centre for Synthetic Biology, Ghent and the Department for Philosophy (Bioethics) in Antwerp (Belgium).
