What does the past of handicrafts look like in the eyes of modern designers, and what kind of inspiration can be drawn from the collection at the museum? The designers invited to the In Good Hands exhibition have had the chance to explore the extensive archives, founded in 1879, of the Friends of Finnish Handicraft at the Design Museum. After this they have created their works in dialogue with the archive materials.

Yuichiro Sato, The Forest – between reality and the imaginary

15.6.–8.9.2019 Art Museum Gallery

Three years have passed since I came to Finland. The light, and the interweave of waters and forests captivated me and continue to fascinate me. In Japan I thought a lot about the power of nature and I tried to express its limitless strength in abstract images. I was looking for new ways of expression using metal, textiles and oxidants along side traditional Japanese painting mediums. But my experience of Finnish nature gave me new inspiration and completely changed me.

Caj Bremer, World of Dreams

5.4.–28.4.2019

Caj Bremer’s ”World of Dreams” series (2015–) is shown at Gallery Ratamo. About this 30-image series, the artist explains: The idea for the images in World of Dreams came about when there was a partial eclipse of the sun in 2015. I didn’t have much time to photograph the eclipse. Or to figure out how. I found a solution and after seeing the result, I decided to continue. That is how ”World of Dreams” began.

Emma Ainala, Dear Ambiguity

24.5.–8.9.2019

Emma Ainala offers a view into a world in which young women play the main role.  The women perform as if on stage with an array of draped fabrics and an abundance of  goods, or surrounded by water and luscious nature. Their regard is focused on the viewer or just beyond, the faces might have more than two eyes, looking through a mask. Their bodies are twisted into many positions – one woman stands on her head, another stretches like an acrobat and a third sits in lotus position. Who are these woman, and in which mythology do they live?
