Helsinki: Kirsti Rantanen
An extensive showing of work by the Finnish textile designer and pioneer of fibre art Kirsti Rantanen (born 1930) can be found this autumn at the Helsinki's Design Museum.
She has taught a whole generation of textile designers and artists, and her own work has been of trailblazing importance. In the 1970s, her expression moved from two-dimensional figurative wall hangings towards three-dimensional sculptural work which grew in the 1980s into monumental entities and installation.
Natural materials and the age-old techniques of weaving are combined in Rantanen’s works.
Venue: Design Museum, Korkeavuorenkatu 23, 00130 Helsinki
