Halikonlahti – Food Chains
Halikonlahti Green Art is a collection of art exhibits around the Bay of Halikko. The 2011 festival is the third of a series of three exhibitions exploring art and ecology in the Baltic region, focusing mainly on the aspects of land use, energy, production, nutrition, waste and politics.
FoAM is participating with two artworks and one worklab. In the installation It Is so Dark Inside the Hive, by Christina Stadlbauer, an osmotic auditorium connects the human senses with the world of insects. The work is based on investigations and experiments with honeybees. In the installation Christina mainly uses wax as a concentrated medium to trigger our oldest, most primal sense, proposing an unusual multi-sensorial visit.
Phoefarium – a temporary lapidarium of PhoEf by Bartaku – contains sketches, video, ongoing experiments and photographs inspired by the increasingly intimate entanglement of mind and body with the transformations of light into electrical, nutritional and human energy. The works are micro-interventions, fragments of Bartaku's artistic research-driven narrative PhoEf: The Undisclosed Poésis of the Photovoltaic Effect. Bartaku is also directing Temporary photoElectric Digestopians [TpED] Worklab #7 as part of a series of co-creation worklabs in which participants/creators are invited to reenact and build upon the “events” leading up to the occurrence of photoelectric bites on 20 October 2010 in Brussels.
Halikonlahti Green Art is taking place at the Roundhouse of Salo Art Museum Veturitalli, Mariankatu 14, 24240 Salo Finland
