Identity

đź”— Identity in, through and beyond art

 

Identity was the debut exhibition by Finnish Spirit in a former mental hospital of Lapinlahti in Helsinki from 3.12.2022 to 31.1.2023. Through dialogue, both permanent and changing circumstances, the particular nature of the site protected by the Finnish Heritage Agency and the various identities of 74 artists created the integrity of the exhibition at a precise time, space and spirit. In the side program was the opening ceremony with the performance of Finnish music group Abite, and the closing ceremony with artists meeting and a panel discussion with Martta Heikkilä, a researcher of aesthetics at the University of Helsinki, three artists of the exhibition, Simo Saarikoski, Vesa-Pekka Rannikko, Matilda Palmu, and the curator of the exhibition Noora Leinikka.
