Hiihtoloop

Aimo Hyvärinen

Snow and ice are the key elements of Finnish life in the winter. They have transformed the way we live, move and enjoy nature for thousands of years. The artist's relationship with skiing was recovered as a nostalgic rein­vention after having two sons (born in 2000 and 2006) and taking part in their skiing explorations. Skiing is meditation.
