Exhibition #68 – Miniatyr Keramik

20.8. – 31.10.2020

Miniatyr Keramik is like a home built into the Lokal gallery space; filled with ceramic miniature sculptures and small ceramic items by

Nathalie Lautenbacher
Matias Liimatainen

We do not wish to discard items and things which are of value to us. Their eternity also doesn’t bother us, but rather, gives us joy.
