The art museum’s permanent exhibition presents a journey through the sculptor and professor Kimmo Pyykkö’s atelier. From his childhood and adolescence in Kangasala, Pyykkö’s road took him to art education in Helsinki and a diverse career spanning six decades in the Finnish art scene.
The exhibition is constructed from a dialogue between original documents, digitized materials, and works of art.
The Long-Distance Atelier exhibition was assembled together with the sculptor and professor Kimmo Pyykkö by architect Jouni Kaipia, PRO AV Saarikko Oy, Jorma Saarikko and Reel One Oy, Tapani Hakkarainen.
