Books and Plants Pop up
Books & Plants is Amos Rex Shop’s summer pop up located in the corner of Lasipalatsi. Books & Plants is inspired by the studio exhibition Between Us, currently on show at Amos Rex until 5 Sept 2021. Books and plants make a good pair, right?
The plant selection has been curated by artist Raimo Saarinen, whose installations are on show at the Between us exhibition. Each of the plants have their own character, but together they make a good team. The plants are complemented by a selection of books from the Amos Rex Shop, with a special focus on plants, gardens, nature and ecology.
As the summer goes by, you can catch artist Karoliina Hellberg painting a mural inspired by the theme on the shop windows. Just like all living things, the painting will grow and fade away as the summer passes.
Come say hi to us and the plants!

Studio exhibition Between us
Between us brings work by three artists to spaces beyond Amos Rex’s exhibition halls into areas that have not so far been used for exhibitions. The show features six installations; all of them have been created specifically for and to the exhibition’s spaces. The works of Karoliina Hellberg, Tero Kuitunen and Raimo Saarinen prompt us to ponder the concept of memory, our complex relationship to the environment, and the elusive nature of beauty. In the exhibition, viewers move from a billowing red world, through a babbling ecosystem to the brink of parallel realities.
