Art Room Sakkinen
Welcome to Riiko Sakkinen Art Room!
“The Hong Kong Curry Flavor Cup Noodle Robot, an explosive mixture of cultures equipped with the seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues, is one of my favourite figures that I’ve used in some of my works after finding the image in a Kowloon supermarket few years ago.
Now the robot stays permanently in an Envy Plus category room – renamed Riiko Sakkinen Room – in the Klaus K Hotel and envies Finnish cuisine enormously, ranging from the traditional Karelian hot pot to the contemporary fast food favourite pizza pollo mexicana.
I wanted to give a realistic image of the Finnish cuisine and show the most delicious and the most disgusting foods and drinks, the high and the low, the native and the imported. In the recent years Finnish food has been mocked by some but at the same time the new Nordic kitchen has been praised around the world.
I wish you will have a comfortable stay in the Riiko Sakkinen Room and that the menu makes You hungry. I’m sure the reception staff can help you find the right places to eat and drink the Finnish delicacies, because, unfortunately, all the listed dishes are not available from the room service but at least you find Kossu (Koskenkorva Vodka) in the mini bar.
If visiting in my installation is not enough, it’s also possible to take the small painting featuring one of the listed dishes with you to your home for 300 euros. The works are unique, signed on the verso and the dishes will not be repeated”.
