Iholla – Lace on Skin

Rauma Art Museum, Rauma

  • 12.6.2021–26.9.2021

Lace on Skin is curated by Paola Suhonen in collaboration with the Rauma Museum and Rauma Art Museum exhibition team. Exhibition touches and makes lace tangible. It shows lace in a new light and brings it to a new age.


Paola Suhonen is known for her design, including fashion, and for being the designer and director of Ivana Helsinki. She is also known as an artist, musician, entrepreneur, film director and for organising the Superwood festival. Suhonen has extensive experience on design, art, and the film industry. In the exhibition, she will be featured also as an artist. Apart from lace work, the eponymous Lace on Skin piece will be displayed at the exhibition, in addition to photographs and installation art. Lace on Skin video has been inspired by and is in a dialogue with the photographic work of Susanna Majuri, who has passed away in 2020. The photo artists image depicts an outfit designed by Suhonen.

The past and the present come together as the museum and art museum of Rauma join forces this year. The visitor will come into intimate contact with lace through fashion design and art. In addition to Suhonen, e.g. Sasu Kauppi, Noora Vihervirta, local lace societies and lace creations familiar from Independence Day Reception will bring new perspectives on lace.

The globally renowned fashion designer Sasu Kauppi will showcase lace in a new context at the exhibition. According to Kauppi, the lace inspired print of his works designed for the exhibition incorporates streetwear and athletic unisex outfits. Originally from Rauma, Noora Vihervirta is about to finish her Bachelor studies in the Aalto University, her major being fashion design. In her thesis, she studied dressing gowns from the 1940s and the organicness of oyster mushrooms. Her design integrates both bobbin lace and knitted fabric.
