Isabella Chydenius (b.1988) is a Finnish interdisciplinary artist based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Chydenius is currently studying a Master of Fine Art degree at the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. Her research-based work focuses on investigating societal structures of femininity, gender and safety/violence. She is interested in the behavioural social constructs behind what constitutes as feminine and masculine in contemporary patriarchal time.
Her interdisciplinary conceptual work combines technologies such as light, sound, videography and interactive animation to create experiential installations. She also works with more traditional mediums like textiles, thread, clay, painting and found objects which she uses to form sculptural installations or audience activated compositions.
