WHAT IS THAT SIGHT?
Come to the world of fantasy!
On Christmas Opening Week November 18th-25th in 2018 the illusion-like Näky artwork was projected to the façade of Onni Art Museum. The artwork is created by artists Jaana Partanen and Heikki Lamusuo in cooperation with their team. In a fantasy-like performance with 3D videomapping technology, the museum collections came alive for a while. The performance could be seen once a night for a week.
Eight performances reached nearly 13 000 viewers.
Joensuu Art Museum commissioned the artwork to strengthen the identity of the museum building. The artwork consists of a playful manuscript utilizing museum collections from ancient Greece to Christian art without forgetting modern paintings and Finnish classics.
