By unveiling and deconstructing forms and methods, Jonna Kina’s works suggest complex questions dealing with a diverse range of topics: the trans-sensory power of sound; the relations and exchanges between artifice and reality; the mechanisms of translation; the relationship between the viewer and the artwork.

Nordisk Panorama selected Kina’s film “Arr. for a Scene” as the “Best Nordic Short Film” (2017). She has been also shortlisted for the VISIO Young Talent Acquisition Prize in Florence (2017).
