At Hanaholmen you can experience art in harmony with nature and with a constant closeness to the sea. The Picture Park is one of Hanaholmen’s new initiatives, offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy Nordic art in an outdoor environment.
Maaretta Jaukkuri is the curator of the Picture Park and she has presented the central idea of the seasons as the theme of the outdoor art. This opens up many opportunities for innovative works, as artists can use the seasons as inspiration and in the choice of materials.
The Picture Park at Hanaholmen stretches around the walkway between the building and the sea. The gravel path, some 500 meters in length, extends around the building, and the art is also accessible for people with disabilities.
Jeppe Hein: Fragmented Circle
The newest artistic addition to the Picture Park is the artwork Fragmented Circle by the Danish artist Jeppe Hein, unveiled in October 2019. The artwork is a gift by the Finnish-Danish Cultural Foundation to Hanaholmen.
The artwork mirrors the spectator and the surrounding nature and architecture. Jeppe Hein is famous for his interactive works that combine minimalism, conceptual art and humour.
