Liina Siib (1963) works mainly in photography, video and installation. Liina Siib graduated from the Department of Graphic Art (BA, 1989) and Department of Photography (MA, 2003) at the Estonian Academy of Arts, studied at the University of Westminster, London as an exchange student and has been a resident at The Lower East Side Printshop in New York and the Ansel Adams Center in San Francisco. The most prominent and recurring themes in Siib’s work include social spaces, marginalised groups and overlooked experiences. Siib has said that she aims not to document but to deconstruct the everyday life of her contemporaries, guided by a feminine approach and experiences from her childhood. In her work Siib looks into how history gets written and the role of memory in shaping various groups in society, often using interviews, observation or archival materials as her method of working. Since 2015 Siib has held a professorship at the Department of Graphic Art at the Estonian Academy of Arts.
