This year’s Helsinki Design Week will kick off with the opening of the Gallery exhibition Strategies for Moving Freely by Swedish designer Jenny Nordberg (b. 1978). This will be the first solo exhibition by Nordberg in Finland. She is known for her insightful perspective on mass production, over-consumption and the duty of designers to take action to confront these and other issues. Nordberg’s works often take a humorous, almost peculiar form. Rather than taking a judgmental stance, she has a positive, solution-oriented approach to serious themes. The exhibition includes a number of Nordberg’s recent works, completed during the years of the pandemic.
