Jani Leinonen has been invited to create this years Easter egg at the prestigeous Dolder Grand in Zurich, Switzerland. The installation decorated with more than 12,000 carnations will be on display in the Steinhalle from 13 April for approximately 1 week. The Easter egg bears the artist’s unmistakable signature and portrays his interpretation of Easter. The egg is accompanied by the “Seeds in Their Pockets” installation – consisting of seven dried flowed that Jani Leinonen collected in war zones across the world, and which convey a message that is really important to him.
Jani Leinonen’s relationship with The Dolder Grand dates back to 2009 and the artist’s works have been exhibited as part of the permanent collection since. Currently there are six works by Leinonen on display.
