Island of Empathy explores the relationship between human beings and nature. The exhibition looks into the potential of art as a means of healing individuals, but also the ills of society while researching the notions of empathy, healing, and intersubjectivity in the context of human and non-human interaction.
The exhibition is organised in Helsinki both at HAA Gallery in Suomenlinna between 5 June–21 August 2021 and at Malmitalo Gallery between 10 June–20 August 2021. Island of Empathy is produced by Helsinki Artists’ Association in collaboration with London-based Arts Territory. The exhibition is part of Helsinki Biennial and Art Fair Suomi Goes Galleries.
