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.
Liz West is a British artist (b. 1985) who graduated from Glasgow School of Art. She produces site-specific installations, sculptures and wall-based artwork. Her art has been exhibited worldwide. The exhibition at Hyvinkää Art Museum is West’s first exhibition in Finland.
