Our artists for June are: Daniel Djamo (Rhumania), Aino Kannisto & Fabien Blot (Finland), Pirjetta Brander (Finland) and Catherine Marie Chapel (France). Fabien Blot has gathered milk cartons since May. Come and see what he has created. Aino Kannisto has continued with her Mänttä-series and tell about her film shoot e.g. at Honkahovi. Catherine Maria Chapel has depicted local nature in her paintings and has been inspired of a certain innovation made in Mänttä. What can it be?
