Ilari Kähönen, sugar


Is it Näkki (The Water Spirit) or medusa lurking in the pool?!!

Sugar, water, glass saucers, reindeer horns, springs - is this a recipe for environmental art? Come and see - free entry!
Environmental art works from Rovaniemi, Pyhäselkä, Jyäskylä, Turku, Lahti and the Helsinki region can be found, hidden or not, in Ala-Malmi Park. Humour, imagination and myths flavour the artists' commentary in defence of nature.
