Hidden Heroes – Borenius Acquires New Art from the Finnish Paralympic Committee’s Charity Auction
The Finnish Paralympic Committee held an online auction in order to sell ten photographic works featured in photographer Johanna Kare’s Hidden Heroes exhibition. Borenius participated in the auction and acquired five of the works.
The auction was followed by the Paralympic Gala held on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which was celebrated on 3 December.
HIDDEN HEROES was exhibited from 2021 to 2022, and it highlighted ten athletes with disabilities and their stories. The exhibition was produced in cooperation with the Finnish Paralympic Committee, and its patron was the President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö. HIDDEN HEROES was part of the KATSO IHMINEN® (BEHOLD THE MAN) concept. The funds received from the photographic works sold at the auction will be allocated to the Paralympic Fund.
