Season XII – The Finnish Season / Keep Your Garden Alive is a group exhibition with eighteen Finnish renowned and emerging artists and designers who are currently reshaping the contemporary Finnish art and design scene. The exhibition is curated by Lise Coirier, Co-Founder of Spazio Nobile Gallery, and Kati Laakso, Director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux. The exhibition suggests a narrative on how to observe what is fragile around us, and how to protect it. How to make your garden flourish in times of drastic environmental changes? Applied arts remind us of how the earth and the natural elements remain as the best source of innovation and creation. The use of design-led craftsmanship such as ceramics, glass, metal, and wood bring us back to our human roots and sense of our material culture. The notion of the garden stands as a symbol for living objects, and how we need to cherish them to pass it onto the next generations. The exhibition implies a metaphor for the inner and outer life as well as a real-life illustration of our mineral and organic man-made world.
