    2nd International Sea-themed Biennale “Marīna 2019”. Contemporary art exhibition “The sea of memories”

    • https://www.facebook.com/MarinaBiennale/

    You get lost during the holiday at the sea and scientists’ warning about the sea pollution seems incredible. There is a 70 thousand square kilometres of the dead zones in the Baltic sea, where every living thing dies. They are caused by human activity, releasing into the sea nitrogen, phosphorus and pharmaceuticals. The exhibition “The sea of memories” draws attention to the pollution of the Baltic sea. It is a mournful and grim analogy based story about the fragile life of a man and the sea. Eva Saukāne video installation with Aivars Vegners 90s amateur video fragments, ballet “Crow” (Vārna) video projections with Reinis Sējāns composed music and starring Elza Leimane will be simultaneously projected on a variety of screens of different sizes, mixing the past, the present and the unfulfilled future. Exhibited are objects made by Kristīne Abika from the items washed out of the sea. Curator of the exhibition Inga Bunkše.
