Exhibition

Aalto&Saitajoki and Korpela

Two exhibitions in our galleries

Until February 22nd 2020
In Cellar and tile galleries we have a joint exhibition by Sirpa Aalto and Juha Saitajoki called Love and Death. Sirpa Aalto's rose pictures are the imagery of love and openness. Juha Saitajoki's framework is the moment of death of Santa Teresa de Jesús, (1515-1582). In our Book Gallery Kirsi Korpelas exhibition Vanitas Art is, as its name suggest, Vanitas-themed and consists of photographs for which she has built still lives and installations. Both exhibitions can be viewed in our galleries until February 22nd 2020.
