UU Market’s & Institut finlandais’ first collaboration, exhibition Nouvelle Saison, will take a new form online.
Even though the world stays still, the seasons are shifting at Institut finlandais. Due to the current situation the exhibition can not take place in IF Gallery, as initially planned. However, with change comes a chance for something new, and we are excited to bring the exhibition to you remotely.
The exhibition’s selection of eight emerging artists highlights a recent generational shift in Finnish arts and design; glass and ceramics find a contrast from dark wood and glossy metal, which harmoniously complement each other.
Designers: Milla Vaahtera, Hannakaisa Pekkala, Laura Itkonen, Paula Pääkkönen, Viivi Lehto, Kristoffer Heikkinen, Ville Auvinen, Laura Pehkonen

Winter Garden is an oasis during the coldest period of the year. For me it is both the place and mindscape, offering a break and breath of summer while the nature is hibernating.
It is like a trip through the Stargate into the middle of the exotic plants and flowers while only the frost is blooming outside. In my artworks the dreamy scenes are mixing with fairy tails, childhood plays and imaginative forms.
The Garden, often repeating in my art, is representing to me unruliness, playful growth and freedom of spirit.
The glass sculptures are made in the famous Nuutajärvi Glass Village in collaborations with talented Glass Blowers.
