Gilbert & George - THE MAJOR EXHIBITION will be their first significant exhibition held in the Nordic countries during the last two decades and showcases pictures exhibited for the first time in Finland.
Playwright, theatre and film director, screenwriter Paavo Westerberg was given carte blanche to curate an exhibition from works in the Bäcksbacka Art Collection at HAM. He approached the task as a storyteller, from the emotional perspective.
The works of Tove Jansson (1914–2001) are amongs the most cherished pieces in the HAM collection. HAM has dedicated some of its galleries to an exhibition of the artist's life and works.
The exhibition is a sculpture installation that spreads itself onto the surfaces of the gallery. The materials used in the sculptures are from the environments of my own life, the yard, the studio, my home, rubbish bins, walks in the forest and journeys.
