Tamed Fear is about facing our fears. Seeing through our fears – not everything is what it seems to be. Not letting our fears control us.
I like to keep my fears right in front of me, someone wise has said that’s a good way to live and I have to agree. There’s no point to run from our fears, they will catch us eventually. I’d rather spend that time on getting to know my fears.
Mia Huu (born 1991) is a Fine Art student at TAMK. She was born in Helsinki and has moved around Finland quite a lot. Now she’s been living in Tampere for few years and is already waiting for her study exchange to be able to live and work abroad. She has been drawing and photographing since a kid and painting since her late teens. Shooting film is her newest interest in the art field.
Huu mainly concentrates on drawing and painting. Her biggest passion is murals and she has done mural as one of the artists of Maailmantango in 2017. It is located in Koilliskeskus, Tampere. ”Bigger is better when it comes to painting”, she laughs. When it comes to drawing she enjoys small details and her favourite technique is dotwork which she uses in her poetic comics and portraits.
”I like to give a form for feelings and thoughts that are hard to understand or explain so people who have similar feelings or thoughts feel less alone. At this moment I’m very fascinated by fear and feeling of loneliness, how they affect us and how we act when feeling afraid or alone.”
At the moment Huu has three of her works in a group exhibition Bits of Us. Exhibition is located at Pop Up gallery she organized and build on March to a local shoping center. Gallery is closed now and will open again when it is safe
