Visual artist Hilda Kozári creates a multisensory installation and exhibition titled Vantaa Black Sense in Galleria K, housed in the old 1950s Vantaa city library.

One of the starting points of the show has been Vantablack, the blackest matter in the world, patented in 2014 and used by, for instance, British artist Anish Kapoor. What will surface from the darkest darkness when we use all of our senses? The artwork speaks to its visitor on how we perceive space and place, the importance of visuality in culture, the experiencing of urban environments, and the accessibility of design and art.

Kozári has previously created multisensory public sculptures in Vantaa. The current exhibition Vantaa Black Sense is curated by Anne Kaarna-Suomi, curator of public art at the City of Vantaa. Interior designer Esa Vesmanen has taken part in the design of the site-specific exhibition, which takes into account the distinct architecture of the building and its interior.

The exhibition has been supported by the Arts Promotion Centre in Finland and the Finnish Cultural Foundation. Thank you: VAPO Fibers, Hungarian Cultural and Scientific Centre.

The exhibition opening is held on Thursday, September 7 from 3 to 6 pm. Welcome!
