HK119 (Heidi Kilpelainen) is a London based Finnish artist, who moves smoothly between the worlds of cabaret, pop music and contemporary art. The performance name HK119 refers to product codes and in creating her Œproduct_ she is the composer, lyricist, costume and set designer, producer, director and performer. Much of her work comments on the relationship between man and machine and advancing technologies. Her fascination with dystopias has led her to make video works, presenting songs in the style of a pop video, featuring punk baroque characterisations. Other works have been inspired by consumerism, popular culture and mass media and society_s ever changing notions of Œself_. As well as making the videos, live performance has always been an important element within her practice with the set designs often referencing the Bauhaus, Futurist and Russian Constructivist movements.

Heidi Kilpelainen was born in 1974 in Finland. She lives and works in London (UK).
