Lin Martikainen with artist name Lin Da (they/them) is a Helsinki-based choreographer and performer whose work focuses on ecology, touch and encounters with the sense of unreadiness. Lin explores relationships between people and their vicinity in dialogue between non-human and human bodies in different contexts. Their works realize through various means from live art performances to short films and audio performances.
During the past years Lin has collaborated especially with choreographers and professionals of the music field. These encounters have given rise to artistic works (Mouthpiece, Mad House Helsinki, 2020), discussions about artistic processes as well as the open sharing of artistic practices (S-projekti, 2016-).
