Fantastical Worlds Exhibition at ASI

By The AMERICAN SWEDISH INSTITUTE
The Fantastical Worlds of Kim Simonsson, a new exhibition at the ASI, showcases sculptor Kim Simonsson of Fiskars, Finland, who crafts beguiling, evocative and otherworldly life-sized ceramics figures, including those he calls “Moss People.” A kneeling girl talking to a two-headed bunny, a sleeping woman surrounded by ghost children and a girl with golden birds flying out of her eyes are contemporary creations that invite viewers into a fairytale-like world inspired by Finland’s primeval forests April 21 – July 15, 2018. Nearly 35 selections of Simonsson’s work will be on view in the ASI’s contemporary Osher Gallery, and throughout the historic Turnblad Mansion. ASI is located at 2600 Park Avenue, Minneapolis. For more details, visit ASImn.org or call 612-871-4907.
