September 1996

This was the first group show of contemporary Finnish art in London. Co-curated by Andy Best & Merja Puustinen and Naomi Siderfin & David Crawforth. Beaconsfield co-produced the exhibition with MUU ry, Helsinki.

The Finnish artists all show internationally and are amongst the most acknowledged in their country. The show includes work in public space in the neighborhood of the gallery and offers, on the one hand, an extrovert, up-front approach to contemporary fast culture and, on the other, darker, more contemplative insights into present day paradigms.

Artists: Eija Liisa Ahtila, Andy Best & Merja Puustinen, Pia Lindman, Pekka Niskanen, Roi Vaara.
