Heini Aho wins the Finnish State Art Commission competition

The Finnish State Art Commission organised an art competition inviting five Finnish artists and one artist duo to give proposals for works of art to be placed in the new building of the Finnish-Russian School in Helsinki. Heini Aho’s proposal Meditatiivinen kello (Meditative Clock) was selected as the winner of the competition.

The artwork explores and expands the traditional idea of time and its essence in a poetic manner. In addition, Aho’s delicate kinetic work is both thematically and pedagogically suitable to the school environment.

The project will be finished in 2020–2021.
