Crazy Christmas Countdown

Jani Leinonen has created a giant Christmas calendar for the Dolder Grand Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland. The installation consisting of 24 pieces of art – one for each day until Christmas is an extravagant and cheerful interpretation of a traditional advent calendar.

 “I’m thrilled to be exhibiting at the Dolder Grand for the second time this year. I have associated the excitement of the run-up to Christmas with Advent calendars since my childhood and hope that my art conveys this sense of joyful anticipation to guests at the Dolder Grand”, Leinonen explains.

Jani Leinonen and the Dolder Grand have been collaborating since 2009, and he regularly exhibits his works at the hotel. For his last exhibition at Easter, Leinonen created an oversized egg from fresh flowers.
