NAKUNA (Fin. naked) revisits the Finnish ancestral connection to the forest as a source of food, emotional sustenance and as a haven for peaceful reflection and contemplation.

With its three installations IKKUNA (Fin. window), everyman’s right kiosk LAAVU (Fin. Lean-to) and MANIFESTI, the exhibition exposes the core values of Finnishness and encourages people to be open and honest for themselves and for others; to metaphorically be naked.
