Some stuff and deep thoughts – sculptures


Welcome to the opening reception on Thursday, 28 April, from 5–7 pm!

The exhibition showcases sculptures with a variety of subjects. Animals, comments on fine art, a certain musical and photographic tone, as well as an ever-present and lurking death are on display.

“New moons may come to an end, new days may dawn from the west, the north may turn into the sea, the currents may flow against the river, the night of St. Lucia may come short, and the great Otava of Finland to bend flat, before I forget you.”

(Through borrowing and modifying early thoughts.)

The exhibition has been supported by the Arts Promotion Center Finland and Visek.
