HELSINKI.- The Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma has opened the exhibition, " The Dream to Come", on view until February 25th, 2024. In preparation for her exhibition, Dineo Seshee Raisibe Bopape spent time in the rural municipality of Hämeenkyrö, Finland, engaging with the joy of being with the lakes, the landscape, the healers of the region and healing herbs. All of this had a significant impact on the exhibition. The installation in the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma turns the entire fifth-floor gallery into a scented arena.

Bopape went on several field trips in Finland when she was preparing the show. During her stay in Hämeenkyrö, Bopape worked with experts on the Frantsila organic herb farm developing a fragrance and a tea blend for the exhibition that features dream-supporting herbs such as heather and hops.

(ka) pheko ye – the dream to come draws upon the idea of dreaming as an activity that is common to all beings and allows one to connect with various timelines. The exhibition continues Bopape’s exploration of healing and re-membering. This is the award-winning artist’s first solo exhibition in the Nordic countries.

Dineo Seshee Raisibe Bopape (b. 1981, Polokwane, South Africa) lives in Johannesburg. She is currently having a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and has recently had solo exhibitions at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan (2022), Ocean Space in Venice (2022) and Secession in Vienna (2022). In 2019, she was one of the artists who represented South Africa at the Venice Biennale. Among Bopape’s accolades is the Future Generation Art Prize, which she was awarded in 2017.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma is part of the Finnish National Gallery, along with the Ateneum Art Museum and the Sinebrychoff Art Museum. The Finnish National Gallery is Finland’s largest art museum organisation. Its activities are governed by the National Gallery Act.

Kiasma organises exhibitions, performances and events. Public programming in Kiasma makes contemporary art accessible to everyone. Its services range from colour play for toddlers to art workshops for grownups to guided tours and events. Kiasma’s extensive educational programming integrates contemporary art into schoolwork.

The museum also houses the Kiasma Library, which specialises in contemporary art, and the Kiasma Theatre, a stage for contemporary live art. Kiasma Club is a free service that anyone can join to earn benefits and discounts on Kiasma services.

Kiasma not only presents contemporary art but also collects and preserves it. Our art collections are part of the collections of the Finnish National Gallery and as such is a significant element of Finland’s cultural heritage. Currently, Kiasma has over 8,500 contemporary artworks in its collections.
