This “Our Pink House” is located near Kerava station, about 30min from Helsinki railway station. You’ll see this Pink House until 26 November, 2016.

This “pink” is made from crochet,  designed by Polish artist called OLEK (Agata Oleksiak), done only in two weeks by volunteers and immigrants.

このピンクハウスはヘルシンキ中央駅から約30分、ケラヴァ駅近くにあります。
2016年11月26日まで、このピンクハウスを見ることができます。

ポーランド人のアーティスト、オレックによるピンクの家はボランティアや移民の方達の手によって約2週間でかぎ針で編み上げられました。

From HP from Kerava city ;

The house was originally built in 1910’s by carpenter Karl Jacob Svensk. During the Winter War 1939-1940, bombs fell to the yard, but family and the house survived. In 2015 over 21 million people lost their homes and had to flee abroad due to war and conflicts. Our Pink House is a symbol of hope and a wish for a better future.

Our pink house is about the journey, not just about the artwork itself. It’s about us coming together as a community. It’s about helping each other. We can show everybody that women can build houses, women can make homes.” – OLEK

Our Pink House is associated with Kerava Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition Yarn Visions, which will place the spotlight on knitted, crocheted, tufted and embroidered works. The exhibition will be shown in Art and Museum Centre Sinkka 26.11.2016-5.3.2017. If the weather permits, Our Pink House will be featured until the opening of the exhibition.

The project produced by Kerava Art Museum has been supported by Finland’s National Board of Antiquities, Prym Consumer Finland, Red Heart (USA) and Kerava Art Museum Friends Association, Kerava Evangelical Lutheran Parish and Savio Printing House. All of them share the artist’s wish: –Everybody should have a home.

We live in challenging times, a changing world filled with conflict, wars and natural disasters. But I like to think that it’s also a world filled with love.” – OLEK

フィンランドが冬戦争の時、元の家の庭に爆弾が投下されましたが家と家族は奇跡的に助かり、建物は今でもケラヴァ駅近くに残されています。
今日約2100万人もの人々が紛争により家をなくしたり逃げなければなりません。このピンクの家のプロジェクトは未来の希望に願いを込めポーランド人の芸術家、オレックが立ち上げました。
