Rauha Hartt graduated from Goldsmiths College, London in 2009 with MFA. She works with painting and dance, combining the two practices into performative experiments. The resulting paintings are an energetic "evidence" of the dance happening. Hartt has conducted various community projects combining dancing and painting, in her native country Finland and abroad.

She's also participated in both solo and group exhibitions and done performances in Finland and abroad since 2003. She lives and works in Espoo.
