Season XII – THE FINNISH SEASON / Keep Your Garden, 20.9-22.12.2019

This group exhibition features Inka Bell, Johanna Gullichsen, Antrei Hartikainen, Mari Isopahkala, Renata Jakowleff, Harri Koskinen, Veera Kulju, Tero Kuitunen, Laura Laine, Päivi Rintaniemi, Kristina Riska, Sami Ruotsalainen, Teemu Salonen, Perttu Saksa, Kustaa Saksi, Caroline Slotte, Heikki Viinikainen, Man Yau

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.

The Tower : standing vertically, in physical and spiritual ascension from earth to sky; as a symbol that links the two, between what is visible and invisible. “The li is the ever-moving, ever-present set of patterns that flow through and in-between everything in nature and in all our perceptions of the world including our own consciousness.” To everything that happens in-between.

About Spazio Nobile

By opening Spazio Nobile in April 2016, in the dynamic and cosmopolitan Ixelles neighbourhood of Brussels (Belgium), Lise Coirier and Gian Giuseppe Simeone have united their passions for design and art history, initiating a dialogue between contemporary applied arts, design and photography. Commissioning unique pieces, limited editions and installations that are both experimental and artistic, with a particular sensibility to everything nature and minerality, the gallery organises four to five exhibits each year, dedicated to both rising and established talents, without creating borders between the disciplines, the visual arts dialoguing with the fine arts.

À propos de Spazio Nobile

En ouvrant Spazio Nobile en avril 2016 dans le quartier très animé et cosmopolite d’Ixelles à Bruxelles (BE), Lise Coirier et Gian Giuseppe Simeone ont uni leurs passions pour la création et l’histoire de l’art en prenant le parti de faire dialoguer arts appliqués contemporains, design et photographie. En donnant l’impulsion à la création de pièces uniques, d’éditions limitées et d’installations à la fois expérimentales et artistiques, avec une sensibilité particulière à tout ce qui touche à la nature et à la minéralité, la galerie organise chaque année quatre à cinq expositions dédiées à des talents émergents ou déjà confirmés. Sans mettre de frontière entre les disciplines, les arts visuels côtoient les beaux-arts.

Spazio Nobile is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11.00 until 18.00 or by appointment.
