New Public Sculpture by Jacob Dahlgren to be Unveiled at Capellanaukio Square in Kalasatama


The new public sculpture will bring colour and playfulness to the Kalasatama residential district. Early One Morning, Eternity Sculpture by Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren is a pink, serpentine steel sculpture. According to the artist, it is like the game where you draw a figure with a single line without lifting the pen from the paper. Rising to a height of four metres and 10 metres in diameter, the sculpture will be unveiled at Capellanaukio square in Kalasatama on Helsinki Day, 12 June 2019.

Early One Morning, Eternity Sculpture will be unveiled by Mayor of Helsinki Jan Vapaavuori on Helsinki Day, 12 June 2019, at 14:30. Saxophonist Jarno Tikka and double bassist Mikael Saastamoinen from the OK:KO band will perform at the unveiling. The artist will be present.
