Keidas - Garden Installation 1 Aug – 6 Sept 2020 is a lush green meeting place in the middle of the city, intended to cultivate faith in the future. The urban garden marks the 80th anniversary of Amos Rex’s owner Konstsamfundet. The Lasipalatsi square, in the core of Helsinki, has revealed its green heart.
Keidas is made up of 80 wooden frames, which are filled with more than 30 types of herbs, edible flowers and vegetables. Growing in these plant towers are pansies, chillies, tomatoes, strawberries, parsley, sage, lavender, mint, young apple trees and many others. All the plants and construction materials will be re-used after the installation. Keidas was designed by the architect of the Amos Rex art museum, Asmo Jaaksi.
Simultaneously with Keidas, Amos Rex presents the Generation 2020 exhibition featuring young artists through 23 August. Keidas runs 1 August–6 September, 2020.
