Kodl Contemporary presents a selection of works by contemporary Czech and Finnish artists Leena Nio, Lukáš Novák, Miika Nyyssönen, Rony Plesl, Vesa-Pekka Rannikko and Ira Svobodová in Prague and in Helsinky. The international overlap is complemented by a selection concept that moves through different media, from paintings on canvas, to objects made of polyester or plaster, to various glass processes including fused sculpture and mixed media.
