Hme Castle, Hmeenlinna

  • 16.5.2024–20.10.2024

The works of award-winning textile artist Raija Jokinen hover between fragility and transience.


The intangible, gossamer human figures are a picturesque piece of textile art, made from dyed linen fibre. In Jokinens artistic identity, textile and visual arts merge and expressions converge in painting, sculpture, graphics and textiles. ​

Linen has played an important role in Hme Castle for centuries. In the 18th century, it was used to pay taxes, and in the 19th century, when Hme Castle served as a womens prison, the prisoners used it to make linen textiles. ​

The exhibition also displays items from the collections of the National Museum of Finland, which were used by the female prisoners of Hme Castle to make linen.

​The items also reflect the historical role of linen in Hme Castle over the centuries.​
