In February 2020 a piece by Young Artist of the Year 2019 Nastja Säde Rönkköcalled for those yet to be (2016–2018) will be on display. The work is one person’s demonstration and a series of video performances on ecological destruction. The project features Rönkkö visiting fragile parts of the globe that are threatened or destroyed by human actions and sending messages to future generations.
The exhibition program of 2020 is opened by visual artist Tacita Dean (b. 1965), currently one of the world’s most significant contemporary artists. Dean is known, in particular, for her 16mm films and working to protect photochemical film, as well as her arresting, large-sized chalk drawings on blackboards.
The works from the Espoo School of Art deal with the visible and invisible phenomena of nature. The exhibition consists of paintings, animations and three-dimensional works by pupils aged between 5 and 13. The Invisible Nature (Näkymätön luonto) exhibition is open from to 3 May 2020 at Nature House Villa Elfvik.
