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.
