Dominika Skutnik is participating in "The Rauma Biennale Balticum" presented from June 12 to September 19, 2010 at The Rauma Art Museum.
Mitämeri? - What's up Sea?
Things are flowing, making waves, floating and foaming at the Rauma Art Museum… The traditionalRauma Biennale Balticum, now being held for the thirteenth time, presents contemporary art taking the sea as its theme. What's up Sea? takes up ecological, aesthetic, economic and ethic perspectives on and for the sea.
The Rauma Biennale Balticum is an art exhibition created around the sea. For over two decades, the Rauma Art Museum has invited artists of the Baltic Sea region to participate in a joint exhibition. The sea has linked artists of the region, and continues to do so. Over the years, the Biennale has taken on new dimensions, and now in 2010 its theme is the sea for the first time. The main role is given to the Baltic, our shared environment, whose ecological state is acute and a subject of wide concern. In the background, however, there is also the sea as a broader concept, myth and symbol of diversity and grandeur that is hard to match.
While the environmental perspective is central to many of the works on display, the artists of this exhibition have also addressed the theme of the sea from many other angles. Nonetheless, the sea is important to all of them.
What's up Sea? is curated by Chief Curator JanneKoski and Curator Henna Paunu of the Rauma Art Museum. The catalogue presents the artists of the exhibition and their works. It contains a selection of excerpts from the books of the Rauma-based author Tapio Koivukari on the Sea of Rauma. The graphic design of the exhibition is by Pasi Rauhala.
Dominika Skutnik's "Rebound"is a site-specific installation that takes part in geologic process of post-glacial land-rise (isostatic movement) characteristic for Fennoscandia.
