Art and Food in Nuuksio

8.-19.6.2019 on a nature path starting from the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia.

Nielu is an art and food event held in a forest, next to Nuuksio National Park. In Nielu, you can have a five-course dinner on top of an artwork, spend a night in an installation or discuss with artists and philosophers. Our theme is environmental change and relationships between human, nature and technology. Nielu is made by a group of artists, cooks and researchers. Artists are building ten installations and doing performances, while cooks are creating edible pieces of art which you can have inside another artwork. Researchers from the fields of environmental philosophy, environmental humanities and energy and philosophy are helping artists to deal with our big theme, environmental change. There will also be panel discussions with the philosophers and artists.
