Inka Kivalo (b. 1956) is a one of the leading names in modern Finnish textile art. Her colourist works combine ancient weaving and embroidery techniques with an intuitive painterliness.

As a counterweight to the gobelin tapestries created at her loom Kivalo also works more freely with malleable objects. The textile sculptures with human shapes made by embroidering occupy the exhibition as if they were both artworks and viewers.
