For several decades, the gymnastics club Vaasa-tytöt (‘The Vaasa Girls’) has gained both national and international reputation for their Finnish hometown. The exhibition Life is a Wave Motion consists of photos from the years 1979–2019, illustrating women’s gymnastics and the œuvre of Mrs. Peppi Häggblom. Peppi with her girls were a phenomenon of their time as ambassadors of women’s gymnastics. Vaasa-tytöt has signified women’s gymnastics at its greatest refinement.
In addition to photographs, the exhibition contains video material, sportswear, and other documents. The exhibition examines also several larger themes, including gymnastics shows, competition activities, mass events, and school sports.
During this exhibition, the gymnastics club Vaasa-tytöt are celebrating their 40th anniversary.
