Plants and humans have co-existed for hundreds of thousands of years, quite literally breathing off of each other: they use our carbon dioxide, we use their oxygen. Music For Plants would like to invite you to meditate on this synergy through sound, light, video and sculptures.
Music For Plants is a five day music and visual art event taking place at Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden in Helsinki during 1.-5.12. Coinciding with some of the darkest days in Finnish winter, the event creates a unique opportunity to feed plant power back into our psyches, enhancing the effect with light, video and sound art in addition to sculptures made purposefully for the plants and the different botanical rooms at this historical greenhouse.
Music For Plants will feature pieces by Chinese-Canadian composer Yu Su, Finnish composers Timo Kaukolampi, Exploited Body, AHO, Ringa Manner and Denzel, video artists Irene Suosalo, Aliina Kauranne, Liisa Vääriskoski and Matti Vesanen, sculptors Landys Roimola and Eetu Sihvonen, photographer Sofia Okkonen, artist Antoine Paikert and lighting artists Alexander Salvesen, Mikko Törrönen and Sami Tas. More artists will be announced later.
Due to the Coronavirus situation, there will be special precautions taken at the event. A limited amount of tickets will be sold for each exhibition starting every half hour. The time allowed to spend at an exhibition is not limited – feel free to be in ease after entrance as long as you want. Using face mask is recommended.
