This exhibition is an encounter between Finnish and Norwegian artists that transcends chronological limits. Akseli Gallen-Kallela is visited by Sverre Malling (born 1977), Louis Moe (1857–1945), Jarmo Mäkilä (born 1952) Odd Nerdrum (born 1944) and Hugo Simberg (1873–1917).

The visual world of the artists of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries is juxtaposed with contemporary artists addressing issues of life and transience. Experiences arising from the subconscious, symbolism, landscapes of the mind, death, ritualistic threats – what do we have in common and what distinguishes us from each other now and a century ago?
