Curated by Konsortium

The exhibition “Dystotal” positions itself in between the dialectic relation of utopian visions and dystopian scenarios. Starting from artists like Malevich, Mondrian and the Bauhaus the entitled radicalness of the modernistic language will be analysed on one hand side. And on the other hand side it will be confronted with its own downside and failure.

The exhibition examines the idea of darkness from a variety of perspectives.

Flowers and plants were popular motifs in art already in the classical period. Bringing flowers as a present is an ancient tradition; flowers can express love, apology, or congratulation for an achievement. Flowers have their own refined language that, in our times, has been almost forgotten. In fine art, flower paintings emerged as a genre in the late 16th Century, and The Netherlands became the centre of the flower and still life style in the 17th Century. Artists would specialize in different motifs, and flower and fruit painters were the most well-known ones. The still lives were often very symbolic and reminded the viewer of the transience of life.

Blige, and LL Cool J during the 1990´s when many of them were not yet famous.

MODEL COURT (LAWRENCE ABU HAMDAN, SIDSEL MEINECHE HANSEN, LORENZO PEZZANI & OLIVER REES)

The film is focusing on the recently concluded trial of François Bazaramba, a Rwandan citizen who sought asylum in Finland in 2003, where he was convicted nine years later for his role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. In a bizarre geographical inversion, the Finnish trial took place from 2009 to 2010 in improvised courts in Rwanda and Tanzania, with the legal proceedings transmitted to and from Bazaramba’s Helsinki prison cell via Skype and other videoconferencing technologies.

THE BALTIC SEA – FLOATING TRUNKS UMEÅ, RIGA, PORI
11.07.2014 - 28.09.2014


Artist duo Simka connects young people with established art in the creation of a work of art for the Pori Art Museum as well to the Cultural Capitals Umeå and Riga.

Key components of the project is the exchange of experiences and expectations along with following up and to work together within an artistic process. The trees are processed and sculpted in workshop format led by the artists. After the workshop the artwork will be launched outside the art museum, where they form a large floating grove of trees.

Floating living trees located on lifebuoys out on the water. The installation is centrally located in each of the three cities. It gives an organic impression that evokes thoughts of man, the water and the trees strength, value, earlier as now, here joined in an unexpected way. The natural elements challenge with and against each other. Lifebuoys (frälsarkransarna sv./ eng. salvationrings) are associated with humans and the maritime dimension in travel and escape.

Baltic Sea - Floating Trunks wants with the cooperation around the artwork to unite local forces - the trees, the water and the residents in a larger perspective of the Baltic Sea and its cultural community. Seeing the Baltic Sea as a common elastic, floating continent. That both unites and divides.

When the trees are brought up on land after the summer, they’ll be placed into a citypark to take root. This provides a long term aspect of the artwork: offering the co-creators an obvious place and part of the city. Baltic Sea- Floating Trunks becomes with its location a link between the river and the sea which leads on to an international context.

Moreover, a final seminar and an anthology of the project gives opportunity to gather and develop the collected experience for future communications.

Baltic Sea – Floating Trunks


Konstnärsduon SIMKA skapar möten mellan unga människor och den etablerade konsten i framtagningen av ett konstverk för Pori Art Museum i Björneborg samt till Kulturhuvudstäderna Umeå och Riga.
Centrala delar av projektet är utbyte av erfarenheter och förväntningar, jämte att följa upp och arbeta med det i en konstnärlig process. Träden kommer att bearbetas och skulpteras på i workshop-form ledda av konstnärerna. Efter workshopen sjösätts verket där de bildar en större flytande dunge.

Flytande levande träd placerade på livbojar på vattnet vid museet. Verket står centralt placerat i var och en av de tre städerna. Det utgör ett organiskt blickfång som väcker tankar om människans, vattnets och trädens styrka, värde, då som nu, här förenade på ett oväntat sätt. Elementen för en kamp med och mot varandra. Livbojarna eller frälsarkransarna ger en association till människan och den marina dimensionen i resandet och flykten.

Baltic Sea – Floating Trunks vill i samarbetet kring konstverket förena lokala krafter– träden, vattnet och invånarna i ett större perspektiv över Östersjön och dess kulturella gemenskap. Att se på Östersjön som en gemensam elastisk, flytande kontinent. Som både förenar och skiljer.
När träden efter sommaren bärgas, placeras de ut i stadens grönområde för att rota sig. Detta ger en långsiktig aspekt av konstverket: medskaparnas självklara plats i stadsrummet. Baltic Sea –Floating trunks blir med sin placering en länk mellan älven och havet som leder vidare i ett internationell sammanhang.

Dessutom bidrar ett avslutande seminarium och en antologi över projektet till möjlighet att samla och utveckla erfarenheterna för framtida kommunikation.
