FIN NOIR exhibition at ‘Passage du désir’ gallery in Paris during SS12 Fashion Week
Loosely translated as ‘Black Finland’, the Fin Noir exhibition design draws inspiration from the Finnish landscape and its wraiths of darkness during the winter, when the light disappears for months. The exhibition presents 16 artists, a multifaceted array of Finnish fashion professionals: designers, photographers and illustrators, and aims at expanding the comprehension of fashion beyond clothing to a conceptual, all-encompassing visual experience.
The exhibition experience is choreographed to create unexpected possibilities for inspiration and an atmosphere where the viewer can surrender into the space and feel simultaneously at peace and lost. The space plays with contrasts: lightness and darkness, closeness and depth, transparency and opacity.
Fin Noir exhibition has been designed in collaboration with interior architect Aino Kavantera.
