Hotel St. George will be spoiled with art. In the Winter Garden, sculptor Pekka Jylhä’s six-meter-long brass bird finds a permanent nest under the glass roof of the Winter Garden. The interplay between light and the bird’s sculptural form creates a striking spatial ambiance. Jylhä has a unique way of mixing scale, material and light. He creates works that observe poetically the large and small details of life while always leaving room for the viewer’s own discoveries and interpretation.
