An exhibition combining fashion, art, dance and music called Boutique will be taking over the Amos Anderson art museum in late summer. As its name implies, Boutique is reminiscent of a fashion house: architects Jaakko Pesonen and Klaus Aalto will transform the museum facilities into an area containing shop-in-shops, where artists and designers will create collaborative works.
The work by fashion designer Paola Suhonen and artist Mikko Ijäs is based on videos which relate to fashion in a fundamental manner. The base for the work, which is constructed in the form of an installation, is made up of short films by Paola Suhonen, onto which Ijäs has painted his own paintings using iPhone technology. Suhonen is studying film directing in Los Angeles.
The exhibition is running from August the 17th until November 12th, 2012. It is part of official World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 program.
