WHEN: August 17th – 31st
WHERE: Fiskepiren+ Mulighedsterminalen
WHO: SeasickFish with : Marisa Molin, Elene Redaelli, Elizabeth Roberts, Maravillas Sola.
WHAT: We are holding an ongoing Art exhibition with a variety of artists, where Art meet Science and Science meets art.
Ocean life and the Human body relate deeply and depend on each other. Art is expressing various scientific elements that prove marine debris cause long term health issues and affect the quality of human lives and the environmental future. This is an exploration of perceiving both dynamic fields (art + science) in an imaginary perceptive form. A lot of marine science seems to already ring a bell for our health challenges that are obvious in an everyday basis experience. Ocean pollution has a huge impact on the food chain and, therefore, our health, wellbeing and balance with the environment. The debris we produce is deeply and profoundly related to the formation of Microplastic, Nano plastic, microbes and bacteria that affect the living conditions of plankton and , as a result, the sustainability of fish and mammals.
Join us and try to understand – absorb Science through Art and Art through Science in our attempt to infuse awareness and responsible ecological perception through our exhibits. In OCEAN + HUMAN exhibition we try to examine the link between Science and Art and our goal is to inspire, awaken, give experience and educate people to initiate better solutions for Ocean + Human health.
A crew of motivated, enthusiastic artists will exhibit their thoughts on the subject through their works of art:
Marisa Molin (Tazmania) has taken her Archaic Jewellery Art to another level by exploring Nano plastic. Her practice focuses on the appropriation and translation of textures and fragments collected from walks along shorelines, creating space for collective and visual dialogue.
Elena Redaelli (Italy) met with BioGenetic Biologist Barbra Dreigo, who intrigued her passion for Microbes (Ocean bacteria) and led her to use them in her ecological art installations. Her art is rather environmental centred, with the use of recycled + local materials exploring the impact of human activity on the natural environment.
Elizabeth Roberts (Oregon/Alaska, USA) creates crafts’ art for kids from marine trash she finds on the beach. Formerly collaborated with Organizations building sculptures that were exhibited at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington DC last summer. And also at the Our Oceans Conference at the US State Department.
Elizabeth will host a workshop that will provide learning about ocean trash and their impact on human health and creating exciting jellyfish, out of the strangest things that we, humans, throw away as trash in the Ocean (mainly fokus on plastic). She also creates regular, everyday packaging products into jewels of marine formations.
Mara Sola (Spain) has gone deeper into expressing the relations between human health and the pollution destroying the ocean-marine life cycle. Ecological chain for Human and Ocean Life is strongly affected by the micro petroleum plastics produced from alien objects dumped in the Ocean. Mara Sola is examining this equation through her long research on the subject.
Sea Sick Fish is also examining expressive science in a colourful psychological way into a different perspective insight of the artworld.
