Pilvi Takala

Born in 1981 in Helsinki. Lives and works in Berlin and Helsinki.

Pilvi Takala was the winner of the 2013 Emdash Award, aimed towards the production of a new artwork for Frieze Art Fair. The artist invited a group of children aged 8 to 12 who were regulars at a youth centre in Bow, London to spend her award. They were free to spend the money any way they wanted, as well as to choose how they would formulate decisions as a group. In The Committee, the children explain how they decided to spend the £7,000 prize money, they discuss the process of decision making, and the values guiding their decisions.
