The House of Play and Rain / 24.2.-19.3.2017

The House of Play and Rain is the first in a series of three exhibitions, as part of Hanna-Kaisa Korolainen’s doctoral studies at Aalto university. The exhibition is inspired by various visual artists, from Raoul Dufy to Niki de Saint Phalle. Rugs, woven jacquards and printed fabrics create a home-like setting, where influences from the imaginary Paris of 1920’s are combined with the artist’s childhood scenery of 1970s Finland. Presenting the sketches, materials and tools behind the artwork reveals the mystery behind the artistic process.
