A memory of a thriving villa culture
The villa was once part of a larger villa community called Linnunlaulu on the outskirts of the city, but only part of it remains today.
Happy to present the latest artist at the residence: Adriene Jenik, who will be at the Theatre Academy of Finland, on the 24th April performing “climate future readings” with her ECOtarot deck from 11:00-14:00 in the Tori, and giving a free open talk at 18:00 (address: Haapaniemenkatu 6, 00530 Helsinki).
You can also meet her at the Aalto University in Espoo for the Radical Relevances conference on btw. 25.4-27.4.
Happy to accommodate the Brick Box crew at the villa this week, for their preparation period of their work called Hope Springs Eternal.
