House of Love and Rebellion
Handicrafts at Hvitträsk 24 June–30 September 2020
The unique works of the textile art, glass and ceramics multitalent Hanna-Kaisa Korolainen and three young Finnish designers Saija Halko, Nikolo Kerimov and Tuuli Saarelainen are inspired by the national romantic milieu of Hvitträsk and the atmosphere of the liveliest years of the studio home. The exhibition explores the origins of this inspiration: the impact of the past, the human desire to love and remember or the honest borrowing of ideas are purposefully present in the works on display. The past feeds the future, and art blends together the differences between periods – it is as if all the imagery is consistent. The demanding handicrafts works elicit thoughts of Hvitträsk as a living, organic entity.
