Flying Stories – stories fly from behind a few decades and tell us about the northern life and culture. The eventful life of the Finns and the Samis revives in Andreas Alariesto’s pictures. Johan Markussen portrays the beliefs and myths of the Inuits, the indigenous people in Greenland. Tyko Vylko depicts the life of his own people, the Nenets, on the coast of the Arctic Ocean. The life appears surprisingly identical, whether the focus is on the coast of the Southern Greenland, the forests in Finnish Lapland or the Novaya Zemlya area in Russia.
The best known bird-painting and one of the most significant paintings of all time in Finland. Painting from the collection of the Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki.
Korundi is a new kind of culture house in Rovaniemi. There is room for visual arts and music. The opening exhibition of Korundi got the name NATURE FORTE which represents the power of the nature and the human character. At the same time, it also refers to the musical term forte – forcefully. In French Forte chute de neige means a blizzard or a snowstorm and in English ’forte’ means also professional skills.
The past of the building is still present in the culture house Korundi, all over the renovated rooms. The exhibition shows the history of the building through photos and stories.
