MAP OF SCARS is a multi-layered map consisting of scars drawn by three charismatic female dancers.

“This dance piece and spatial event gets on skin and under your skin. Tuukkanen’s piece makes being present a form of art.” - Eeva Kauppinen, Teatteri&Tanssi 2/2013.

”It is hard not to adore these women.” - Sari Hakala, Savon Sanomat, Nov.18th 2012.

Johanna Tuukkanen is a freelance artist and curator who has collaborated with artists from different fields for over fifteen years in the contexts of dance, live art and performance. Tuukkanen’s art often arises from everyday observations on living as a woman.
