Dialogue – Woven and Embroidered Bridge 16.12.2023-3.3.2024

The Finnish-Japanese exhibition is based on a textile-oriented work exchange, where the theme has been travelling in its various meanings. Saori weaving and Sashiko embroidery are adding their own spice to the works.

The Japanese aesthetic has inspired Finns since the artists of the Golden Age. Similarly, the Japanese have been particularly interested in Finnish design for decades. The themes that unite both cultures are nature, quiet work, and immersion in one's own inner world.

The importance of examining one’s own cultural background and the continuous change and interaction of cultures is a visible theme.

LUX - Lighting by Juha Kajaniemi 30.9.-3.12.2023

Lighting and lamps are a fascinating combination of design aesthetics and the use of electricity to produce light.
