Nanna Susi & Canal Cheong Jagerroos
Canal Cheong Jagerroos, Undefined Exclusion I, 2019 

Nanna Susi is one of the most internationally successful Finnish artists known for her expressionistic, colourful paintings. Canal Cheong Jagerroos is a Chinese artist who combines traditional Chinese art with western style in her own unique way. In 2015, the two artists started a project called Blue and Red and travelled together across Finland and China. The works in the exhibition are inspired by their journey.
