Abstract

The designers invited to the In Good Hands exhibition have had the chance to explore the extensive archives, founded in 1879, of the Friends of Finnish Handicraft at the Design Museum. After this they have created their works in dialogue with the archive materials.

Based on the archives, visual artist Hanna-Kaisa Korolainen, fashion designer Henna Lampinen, sculptor Matias Liimatainen, and game designer Henri Tervapuro created new works and products that combine traditional handicraft techniques, various materials, and technology. The exhibition was on display at the Design Museum from early 2020, and will move to the Craft Museum of Finland in Jyväskylä between September 12 – December 5, 2020. The artists of the Jyväskylä exhibition are joined by illustrator and designer Anna Alanko, who designed her pieces for the exhibition after examining the Friends of Finnish Handicraft swatches stored in the Craft Museum of Finland collection.

Curators Riikka Latva-Somppi and Kieran Long.
