Tommi Toija: Archeology of Emotions exhibition at Taidehalli

Tommi Toija’s Archeology of Emotions exhibition will be displayed at Taidehalli on 1.6.-6.10.2024.

Toija’s fascinating studio will move from the Lallukka Artists’ Home to Kunsthalle Helsinki. Visitors can explore the rich collection of artworks, tools, and inspiring objects, and occasionally watch the artist at work.

Tommi Toija is especially known for gently rebellious sculpture figures that examine their surroundings with eyes wide open. The exhibition will also feature newer sculptures, paintings, and drawings.

Kim Simonsson: Moss Giants in Helsinki

“The Moss children are independent, they don’t need the help of adults.” – artist Kim Simonsson.

The moss giants are the first works by Simonsson to be shown outdoors in central Helsinki (29.4.2024–20.10.2024). Four shimmering green figures have laid down temporary roots in the Lasipalatsikortteli Square and on the terrace of Bio Rex. A haunting mystery surrounds these moss giants, some of the Finnish sculptor Kim Simonsson’s largest works to date.
