Three very different artists, Robin Lindqvist, Veronika Ringbom and Henry Wuorila-Stenberg show paintings, prints and drawings. Artist and curator Jan Kenneth Weckman ties the works together by suggesting, if these works can be investigated in the light of beauty? The distance between the proposal and works might also be transformed in to a question about the being of beauty.
Is it a question about the beautiful, the way all kinds of things may be displayed, or are we able to talk about beauty as a thought, a goal or as an ethos (in art as well)?

The exhibition does not give answers, only builds a space for inquiry, in which we take up a position, each one on our own, like the light, that floods on the work. What do we see, if we ask about beauty in art and in life?
