Poetry of Matter – Eila Hiltunen 100 years

Didrichsen Art Museum, Helsinki

  • 10.9.2022–29.1.2023

The exhibition presents the career of one of the most internationally renowned Finnish sculptors, including works from the 1940s to the early 2000s.


Eila Hiltunen described the sculptor as the poet of matter". Different materials and surface treatments are emphasised in the works, exhibiting the sculptor's vision. The artist's oeuvre consists of both figurative and abstract works. Key themes in the exhibition include the impression of movement, which Hiltunen captured in her dancing figures, as well as forms of growth and flourishment inspired by nature.

Curated in collaboration with Hiltunens heirs, the exhibition is the most extensive overview of the artist's work in over twenty years. Some works that have previously not been shown in Finland will also be on display. The exhibition includes sculptures, medals, jewellery and sketches.
