Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto forms the backdrop of the exhibition Call to the Wild / L'Appel de la Nature that runs until November 29, 2020. 

This group exhibition presents a refined combination of contemporary sculptural works by glass artist Laura Laine, textile designer Kustaa Saksi, and sculptor and ceramicist Kim Simonsson. While working with different materials, the artists have a common material approach, presenting works with a three-dimensional feel that perfectly fits with the characterizing organic, functionalist atmosphere of the Aalto-designed surroundings.
Curators: Lise Coirier, director of the Spazio Nobile Gallery, Brussels, and Kati Laakso, director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.

Check out the Maison Louis Carré website for booking and info.

Photographer Frederik Vercruysse captured the essence of the exhibition and location in a new series of images, which are published in the catalog designed by Ahonen & Lamberg.
