The Copper Smithy, Fiskars
Every Day 11am - 6pm

Onoma celebrates their 25th anniversary by highlighting it’s members and local know-how.

Fiskars is a unique environment where a large number of artists live and work. Majority of the population of the former iron works community works in the creative industries: artisans, designers and practitioners of a variety of art forms. Almost a third of them are members of Onoma. 25th anniversary exhibition TÄÄLLÄ | HERE | HERE explores this local unique context and highlights Onoma’s versatility and the artists behind the works.

The local is a theme that during the 2000s has received more and more attention and has been emphasized especially now, in the circumstances in which we have lived since March last year. Nearly 60 local artists, designers and artisans have, from different points of view, delved into the local as a theme and the significance of the place.

In the exhibition you can follow different paths, one of which is the time perspective: the past, the present and the future. Another path can be said to be one’s relationship to surrounding phenomena and beings. Of course, the paths do not form an unambiguous map, but are intertwined and complement each other. In the same way, time, place and phenomena are intertwined and form the different conditions under which we operate, regardless of whether it is a physical place or an emotional state.

MANY GUIDED TOURS – experience the exhibition together with the artists

The exhibition can be experienced on summer Saturdays together with exhibiting artists on guided tours called “Here together with an artist”. Other guided tours, for example “Onoma25” with a focus on Onoma’s history, are arranged daily throughout the summer. Tickets for the tours can be purchased in advance from Fiskars Village‘s online store from 1.4.2021.

During the spring, you can follow the exhibition’s actors and how the exhibition is progressing on Instagram and Facebook. Throughout the year, the video is published on YouTube, where members share their stories and memories of Onoma.
