Exhibitions

Inkun Ideapaja 45 years old

Inkun Ideapaja is a business in Korso that passes on the joy of handiwork and success.

In the course of the years, myriad works have been made out of toilet rolls and silk paper. “Viidakko” (“Jungle”), on exhibit at Vantaa Info, is a stand on climate change as well as a tribute to Inkun Ideapaja’s 45-year history.

“Rainforests are being burned in Brazil... The first thing that comes to my mind is two parrots... What could we do to stop climate change... The women are sitting at the table and talking enthusiastically... All the yet unknown species are endangered... How many toilet rolls do we need for this piece... Sometimes I wonder whether there is any sense in this... People’s comments: “that is going to be marvelous,” “will you sell it when it's ready”... doing together, friends’ support...” (Milja Kolmonen, artist of the joint “Viidakko” work)

The exhibition is on show:

Myyrmäki Vantaa Info August 4 - August 28, 2020.

Bug exhibition

Vantaan Fotokerho and Vantaa Environment Centre arranged a photo exhibition in honor of the 2019 bug theme year, and it received almost 500 works from enthusiastic participants.

Altogether 116 photos were taken of the favorite subject, butterflies. The second biggest number of photos—in all, 78 photos—were shot of beetles. Jukka Ahde's photo of a banded demoiselle won the digital series, whereas the winner of the Instagram series is a fly veiled with dewdrops (photographer: Marjo Kamila). Both series also awarded the second and third best photos. The digital series also granted an honorary reward, and the Instagram series awarded the photo that received the biggest number of likes.

The winning photos were praised for, among others, their originality, resolution, and colors. In general, the most successful photos were of dragonflies as well as those where water elements were strongly present.

Photos of the competition are on exhibit:
