On behalf of nature

Work from the Heino Art Foundation collection

On behalf of nature presents different ways of portraying the landscape and nature through modern art techniques. It highlights a theme that is becoming more and more timely: the complex and contradictory relationship between humans and the environment. The exhibition artists include Petri Ala-Maunus, Axel Antas, Elina Brotherus, Ilkka Halso, Markus Rissanen, Kim Simonsson and Kristiina Uusitalo. Viewing these works can make us think about what we can and should do on behalf of nature.

The Heino Art Foundation's collection is one the most important modern art collections in Finland. Commercial counselor Raimo Heino, Mrs. Raini Heino, and their son Rauli Heino, gallerist and art historian, assembled the collection. The art collection was based on the Heino family's acquisitions and personal tastes. Their motivation lay in their passion for and love of art. The Heinos primarily view art as a kind of spiritual capital rather than an investment.

The exhibition was produced by the Kouvola Art Museum Poikilo and the Heino Art Foundation.
