Call to the Wild gathers three Finnish contemporary artists and designers at Maison Louis Carré, a unique building designed by Alvar Aalto, which recently celebrated its 60th anniversary.

The exhibition presents a refined combination of contemporary sculptural works by glass artist Laura Laine, textile artist Kustaa Saksi, and sculptor Kim Simonsson.

While working with different materials, the artists have a common material approach, presenting works with a three-dimensional feel that perfectly fit with the characterising organic, functionalist atmosphere of the Aalto-designed surroundings.
