Works by Anne Koskinen and Noora Schroderus are featured at the new Serlachius Art Sauna in Mänttä. Standing on the shore of Serlachius Museum Gösta, the architecturally unique sauna building is characterised by the dialogue of art, design, landscape, and architecture. Several of Koskinen’s Findling sculptures are peeking from among the cobblestones at the outside patio, and Schroderus’s Intim Interiör plaster works lead to the unisex restrooms. The building is planned by the same architect trio who designed Serlachius Museum Gösta’s Pavilion: Hector Mendoza, Mara Partida and Boris Bežan. In Finland, architectural partner is Pekka Pakkanen. Other participating artists are for example Jussi Goman, Laura Könönen and Anni Rapinoja.
