Oasis 1

Zoltan Popovits
1985

Located in the Forum shopping centre, this oasis brings thoughts from around the world to Helsinki. A U.S. citizen of Hungarian origin, artist Zoltan Popovits (1940-) has lived and worked in Finland since 1965.

The crossing points of art, commerce and culture breathe life into the city and create oases. Some will only show themselves to those who happen to pass by, and some will make a permanent mark in your heart.

What are some points in the city which you return to, over and over again? What are these magnets that make it easier to breathe?
