For Humans and Beetles – The Secret of Gardens at Järvenpää Art Museum 13th Feb–28th Aug 2022
Welcome to enchanting gardens and to the splendor of flowers, plants and trees. The beloved
paintings by artists of the golden era of Finnish art -Albert Edelfelt, Magnus Enckell, Pekka Halonen, Eero Järnefelt, Helene Schjerfbeck, Venny Soldan-Brofeldt – and the works of three contemporary artists, Liisa Hilasvuori, Tamara Piilola, and Pasi Rauhala invite you to rest, refresh and enjoy yourself while also providing a view into parts of the garden that are kept more secret: what lies beneath the soil, insects, and the relationship between humans and nature. Humans protect, enjoy, and cultivate nature, but also destroy, change, and lose it.
