Artist Urve Tõnnus: “WOMAN”

The Estonian artist Urve Tõnnus describes her collage exhibition: “We are continuously confronted with the wastes of manufacturing, consuming and the overflow of advertising in our contemporary consumer society. To draw attention to this abundance of production, I have used old second hand materials, such as magazines, newspapers, trinkets (jewellery) and clothes in creating my works, giving them a new life and purpose. I have used my friend’s jewellery and clothes and also my own, perpetuating the memories of the past.” 

Urve Tõnnus: "WOMAN" 
Taidesalonki Piirto, 
Uudenmaankatu 7, Helsinki 
2.–27.3. 
Open 11 am - 16 pm

Helsinki Sauna Day

Helsinki is full of saunas that are often empty and seldom seen by most. What if we did something about this for just one day and invited everyone over for a sauna? Helsinki Sauna Day is an event that opens the doors to the city’s saunas for everyone to enjoy.
