CASE GALLERY is celebrating the year of bird (...rooster to be exact...in the Chinese Lunar Calendar) with TITITYY by Heini Riitahuhta. Titityy comes from Finland, which is a country in the north, and the country’s snow and changing seasons are part of the bird’s character. The Titityy is brave enough to travel far away from Finland as long as it can take a small part of its homeland with it.
At this exhibition at CASE, the visitors can enjoy playing with titityy hanging out in the forest created with a rope and 2x2 in Shibuya Tokyo by a young Japanese designer Kunikazu Hamanishi. Find more/current information on Facebook.
