The Manifesto of Stillness exhibition brings together five artists for whom silence is a central aspect of creating art. Silence is often perceived as the absence of speech and sound.
However, for these five artists, silence is more than the state of being quiet; it is also a way of working that allows space for accessing internal images and experiences, finding connections, hearing, and being truly present.
Via this process, the artwork becomes manifest of stillness. The exhibition’s paintings, photographs and installations, which all focus on the same theme, cover the floors and walls of the large exhibition hall.

Tapio Haili: Vaivero Mill, Hyvinkää, woodcut
Graphic artist and painter Tapio Haili (1927–1986) was truly prolific. His artworks that are rich in colour, pieces inspired by Hyvinkää and atmospheric travel pictures form the backbone of this exhibition.
Inspired by nature, Haili brought landscapes, particularly those of Lapland, to life in his artworks. The islands of the Gulf of Finland with their shores were also close to his heart as a subject.
Through his roles as a founding member of a local artists' association and a teacher at Hyvinkää School of Arts – and later as its rector – Tapio Haili had a lasting impact on the city's art scene. Over the course of several decades, Haili also shared his knowledge of printmaking with hundreds of pupils.
