Sini-puna-silta (pohjoinen-etelä)

Artist Anna-Lea Kopperi

, Helsinki

The contrasting colors of red and blue, originating from Anna-Lea Kopperi’s work of art, decorate the pedestrian and bicycle bridge at the Kannelmäki railway station. The northern view from the bridge has been made blue with a translucent gradient film that gets darker towards the top. Similarly, the southern side has been made red. Thus the northern view looks colder and the southern view warmer.

The title Sini-puna-silta (pohjoinen-etelä) can be translated as ‘Blue-Red-Bridge (north-south)’.

Anna-Lea Kopperi has complemented her art studies in both France and Germany. Her art is mainly environmental art. Kopperi is interested in combining contrasting elements: minimalistic and geometric shapes combined with natural elements and materials.

The work doesn’t belong to the collections of the Helsinki Art Museum.
