Call to the Wild / L'appel de la nature captured by Frederik Vercruysse

Last summer our Call to the Wild / L'appel de la nature exhibition was captured in truly sensuous images by a talented photographer Frederik Vercruysse. The exhibition highlights a selection of works by Finnish artists Laura Laine, Kustaa Saksi, and Kim Simonsson. Call to the Wild creates a wonderful dialogue between the contemporary artworks and the Maison Louis Carré, designed by Alvar Aalto in the late 1950's. The exhibition has been curated by our Director Kati Laakso and gallerist Lise Coirier (Spazio Nobile), in kind collaboration with Galerie NeC Nilsson et Chiglien Paris, Maison Louis Carré, and the Finnish Embassy in Paris.
