NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

During the spring, EMMA will feature a selection of delightful ceramic animal figures. The playful environment designed by contemporary artist Lotta Mattila (b. 1986) will display animals created by ceramic artist Michael Schilkin (1900–1962). Mattila, who is also known for her animal characters, will take part in the exhibition with her own new sculptures created for the exhibition.

Russian-born Schilkin worked in Arabia’s art department in Finland during 1935–1962 simultaneously with Rut Bryk. The exhibition, which is based primarily on the collection of commercial counsellor and collector Kyösti Kakkonen, is on display in connection with the Bryk & Wirkkala Visible Storage.
