Power of Ceramics: Modernism in Finnish Applied Arts

Event Type:

Exhibition

Location:

Osaka, 大阪府

Event Description

This exhibition introduces the rich artistry of the world of Finnish ceramics, illustrated by the approximately 130 objects selected from the collection of Mr. Kyösti Kakkonen, a world-renowned collector of Finnish craft works.
At the same time, we are also showing a special exhibition “Marimekko Spirit — Finland Meets Japan”. Marimekko, a renowned textile brand of Finland, was founded by Armi Ratia (1912-1979) in 1951. The brilliant, colorful textiles with vigorous, unique patterns, which appeared in the years of postwar hardships, were fresh, innovative designs unfamiliar to the people of Finland at that time. This exhibition displays new patterns created by three leading Marimekko designers under the theme “JAPAN” and introduces their production processes. Visitors will also find a tea room designed specially for the Osaka venue. Designed and supervised by Marimekko, visitors can experience the bodily sensation of a creative space, which is a fruit of the encounter of Finland and Japan and the mutual acceptance and exchange of their contemporary cultures.
