Salla Valle (b.1990) is a performance artist based in Helsinki. She has studied visual art in Art School Maa and live art in Kankaanpää Art School, from which she graduated as BA in the spring 2017.

Valle has also been active in organizing performance art events.

Valle creates performances using time, body and presence as her tools. She relies on minimal aesthetics and builds her works out of simple materials and clear ideas using surroundings, infrastructure, sound and objects. The starting point of all her works is the subjective perception, weather the topic is climate crisis or feases. For her it is important to share the same time and space with others in a live situation.
