This exhibition by visual artist Liz West will take over the museum’s Main Hall and Kaapo Gallery in October, filling the spaces with works of art that invite visitors to explore and offer the body and mind colour therapy during the dark winter months. West’s site-specific installations, which often use reflections and synthetic materials, explore colour as a psychological and physical phenomenon. Light also plays a specific role in West’s art – without light, colours are not visible. Her works use the interplay between light and colour to generate holistic, multisensory experiences. The exhibition is curated by Laura Köönikkä.

"I am delighted to have been invited to present a solo exhibition In Physical Reality at Hyvinkää Art Museum, my first exhibition in Finland. I will be showing new work A Familiar Variant, made specially for this presentation as well as reworking Iri-Descent in a site specific context (originally commissioned by London Design Festival and Fortnum & Mason's in 2019)."

Taidelabra – Art Lab
See, experience and experiment!

The Art Lab is a new, interactive exhibition space that combines a learning environment and the Hyvinkää Art Museum’s permanent
art collection. Multi-sensory experiences, digital applications, experimentation, and hands-on activities form the heart of the Art Lab.

Five very different rooms and works from the collection of Hyvinkää Art Museum form an entity called Taidelabra – Art Lab. Art Lab offers visitors the opportunity to question and be surprised, or even confused.

Art and labs are two very different things, but in the Art Lab they come together. What is art? It consists of playing, experiencing, using all senses, finding new perspectives and making discoveries. A lab is a place for hands-on experiences, experiments and
exploration, not white coats and test tubes. It is a place where you can touch, listen and be surprised. Or you can just sit, watch and study the works without any rush.
