Program

Doors open at 18:00

Guided tour of the exhibition Land Handan Hafsins / Land Beyond the Sea by director Sabina Westerholm at 19:30

The concert starts at 20:30

During the Museum Night on Friday 7th of February the Director of The Nordic House, Sabina Westerholm, will give a guided tour of the exhibition. The guided tour will be in English and it starts 19.30.

Land Beyond the Sea is a group exhibition. The dialogue between art and fantasy lies at the heart of this group exhibition featuring five Finnish artists who share their ideas and dreams of a better world. Besides immersing us in a world of pining and daydreams, the exhibition also looks at what happens when realities collide. It also raises the question: whose experiences are valuable?

Performing on Museum Night are cellist Okkyung Lee Music Page and kantele player Olli Aarni that have during the last few days carried out a mentor program by Forecast at The Nordic House. Okkyung Lee will perform an improvised piece on the cello and after Olli Aarni will play the traditional Finnish instrument kantele and electronics.
