Location: Hakaniemi administrative buildings, Siltasaarenkatu 13

The administrative buildings at the end of Siltasaarenkatu will be bathed in colours one last time before they are replaced by the new Lyyra real estate development. The grey offices will blush with all the attention paid to them by LUX, as bright vines wrap themselves around the buildings. The installation reveals the playful spirit of the administrative buildings that is hidden behind their modest façade.

Powerful beams of light are thrown into the sky, inviting viewers to stare up into the heights instead of keeping their eyes on the ground. The installation brings out the true nature of this city district: Kallio does not have a grey soul. Instead, it is background against which all the colours can shine.

In collaboration with Ylva.
