Temple of Love

2003
Bjarne Lönnroos

“You, dear in my heart / Every day by your side / We shall never part / How I have loved you.” In Bjarne Lönnroos’s (1959–) art, text serves as the perfect complement to the work. The Temple of Love glows in the dark like a lighthouse, gently guiding us in the right direction.

With this picnic, we suggest an inspection of the heart. Contemplate the people close to you – hopefully you have managed to bring somebody like this along, perhaps with tasty sandwiches. We give you an excuse to whisper your feelings of affection and respect. A moment to cherish for a long time to come.
