EXHIBITION OF THE CONTEMPORARY ART "TELLING THE BALTIC"

2014-02-11

From 13 December, 2013, until 19 January, 2014, at KCCC exhibition spaces the exhibition of contemporary art “Telling the Baltic” was open for public.


“Telling the Baltic” is a collaborative storytelling project, where participating partners gather a range of materials and “stories” from individuals who live within and who travel throughout the South Baltic region. The collected materials span many forms and types and include traditional interviews, photo essays, digital stories, historical and archival media, as well as accidental encounters, ambient sounds, and abstract images, all gathered from sea-travelers, sea-dwellers, and from the sea itself. Traditional marine landscapes are replaced by photo and video installations, documentation, performances, objects, etc.

In the exhibition works of 20 artists both individuals and duets were presented: Danil Akimov [RU], Oleg Blyablyas [RU], Anna Brag [SE],  Alexey Chebykin [RU], Astrid Göransson [SE],  Henrik Lund Jörgensen  [DK], Alexander Lyubin and Vassily Kolesnik [RU], Gintaras Makarevičius [LT], Patrycja Orzechowska  [PL],  Paetrick Schmidt [DE], Michael Soltau [DE], Anna Steller [PL], Łukasz Szałankiewicz [PL], Konstantin Traschenkov [RU], Johan Thurfjell [SE], Agnieszka Wołodźko [PL], Anton Zabrodin [RU], Iwona Zając [PL], Anna Zaradny&Szymon Rogiński [PL], Marek Zygmunt [PL].

Curators: Torun Ekstrand [SE], Elena Tsvetaeva [RU], Agnieszka Wołodźko [PL].
