Kristiina Lahde received her BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in (Halifax, NS) in 1999. Lahde works in collage, sculpture and installation. In 2011, her work was featured in the 7th edition of La Biennale de Montréal. She has recently been awarded a Creation Grant from the Canada Council for the Arts and a Mid-Career Grant from the Ontario Arts Council. She will be participating in a residency at Open Studio (Toronto, ON) in Fall 2012.
Lahde re-works everyday materials with mathematical precision that transforms them into perverse geometric constructions, releasing them from their utilitarian origins.
