January 5th - March 23rd 2018
Aune Riihonen, who has recently celebrated her 90th birthday, has been making Kalevala-themed applications, silk paintings and sculptures using natural materials for many decades.
The artist is well versed in the Kalevala's text and has carefully examined the background for her works. In addition to the main heroes of the Kalevala, she has also given careful attention to different nymphs and other mythic figures, trying to find contacts with the mythology of other countries.
