In the beginning of autumn, Helsinki Contemporary brings to the Artek Helsinki store a collection of works specifically created for the space by visual artist Ville Andersson. The whole continues the collaboration between Helsinki Contemporary and Artek Helsinki within the framework of the gallery’s Art in Space (Taide tilassa) concept.

Ville Andersson’s works combining drawing and vinyl stickers are created on tinted papers carefully selected by the artist. The delicate and airy works move in a dialogue between the organic and the graphic, with a quiet and minimalistic touch, characteristic of the artist.

Artek Helsinki

The store features book and magazine selection. It also carries a large range of home textiles, including fabrics, curtains and carpets. The store frequently hosts events and international artists, designers, and authors, retaining Artek’s role as a cultural and and community-driven platform in the city.
