KAMU’s special exhibition, Everything and Nothing – Architects Kaija + Heikki Siren is the first in Finland to present a comprehensive review of the Sirens’ architecture. The simple beauty characteristic of the Sirens’ style led the Italian composer Luigi Nono to exclaim: Tutto e niente! This has everything and nothing!

The idea underlying the Ceramics Facing the New exhibition is kintsugi, the Japanese tradition of mending broken pottery with gold or another metal. Instead of concealing the damage, kintsugi seeks to establish a new relationship with it. In this exhibition, kintsugi serves as a metaphor for society. A fracture can be a signal of something new. How can fragments be re-joined to create a renewed yet enduring structure?

Exploring the travels of artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865–1931), this exhibition transports the audience from 1880s Tyrvää to 1920s New Mexico, inviting us to reflect upon our relationship with travelling, mobility, and the experiences it affords us. The exploration is brought to life through contemporary art and soundscapes.
