The Ars Fennica experience

According to trusted sources over 800 guests walked through the doors of Kiasma to celebrate the Ars Fennica nominees Thursday night. Seven of these were Eyes as Big as Plates’ very own super models: Thank you Velkkari, Tuija, Matti, Jaska, Leena, Markku, Marie-Ange, the whole of the extended Ikonen family and the traveling British, American and Norwegian cheerful support crew – what a magical Thursday night in February!
