Four artists, who permanently live and work in Provence region, were selected to the exhibition: ceramist Anitta Asunta-Plane, photographer Irmeli Jung, painter Anneli Palsa and painter Liisa Wartio-Corbiere. These Finnish women have bravely went out to the world, adjusted and adapted to the new environment.

Art tells their story: Why are the works of art what they are? How does the new home country affect on the artists’ production? Does homesickness appear or have new influences invaded their thoughts?

The exhibition also visits Finland 100 years cultural celebration in Nice on 8th April. In the Theatre Francis Gag, 4 rue de la Croix, Nice, the works of art will take over the theater’s corridors and rooms.
