We visited artist Kasper Muttonen at his studio in Lapinlahti, Helsinki. He talked to us about the elements of his upcoming exhibition: Water, Domes, and finally – Utopia (the title of his exhibition) vs. Dystopia.

In the context of environmental change, Muttonen reflects on how close our current reality is to Dystopia, and our constant dream and aspiration to Utopia. Watch the videos below to hear the artist’s point of view and to see what to expect from his upcoming show at Galleria Sculptor.
