Suomenlinna Treasure Hunt

Participating artists: Noah Angell, Davina and Daniel, Ben Fain, Eric Hynynen, Pekka and Lea Kantonen, Jaakko Karhunen, Patrick McGoohan, Carrie Schneider, Veronika Spierenburg.

Suomenlinna Treasure Hunt is a curatorial project involving the participation of artists from Helsinki, Suomenlinna and elsewhere, and taking the form of a one-off guided tour around eight art works placed or performed on various sites in Suomenlinna. Each stop on the tour reveals a work – ranging from film and performance, to participatory projects – in corners and buildings of the island which are normally hidden from public view. The works respond in various ways to the local historical, socio-political or geographic context, and give an insight into the civic life of Suomenlinna as perceived by the island’s short-term inhabitants.

Suomenlinna Treasure Hunt is a project devised by Anna Colin (curator-in-residence of HIAP/FRAME) and Veronika Spierenburg (HIAP artist-in-residence).

Meeting point: Suomenlinna Ferry Terminal at 3pm. (The ferry leaves from Kauppatori at 2.40pm.) Languages: Finnish and English. The event is free and followed by refreshments at Restaurant Yläkerho.
