“Parting With Return (You’re So Busy)” is not only the title of the exhibition in the Vapaan Taiteen Tila bunker in Helsinki, but a call to softly carve out time from our overstretched lives and increasingly complicated global issues in a reflective and nurturing space aimed at the celebration of artistic exchange.
