Viikinsaari is a beautiful summer recreation island only 20 minutes boat trip away from Tampere city center. Every summer the Fine Art students of TAMK School of Art and Media host an environmental art exhibition on the island in cooperation with the City of Tampere Cultural Office and Suomen Hopealinja (Finnish Silverline). This year the exhibition is called Ars Viikinsaari 10.

The artists are: Liisa Ahlfors, Anne Lehtelä, Jyri Lisowsky, Ninni Luhtasaari, Minna Mukari and Viika Sankila.

The exhibition deals with the relation between the reality of the nature and human created culture using the methods of contemporary art. The features of city culture are brought to be a part of a nature reserve, and the scenery you are used with shift at a closer look. Some of the works are participatory, the viewer is a part of her environment for a moment.
