Next comes the incredible Nervescape VIII. The colorful show is by internationally renowned New York-based Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, aka Shoplifter. The colorful furry world takes AlexAlex in as she explores the exhibition – this is art that invites you to touch, play and smile. You have to see the video and if you can, visit Kiasma yourself to experience it!
There and Back Again exhibit features contemporary art from the Baltic Sea region and showcases art by 26 artists from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Finland and Russia. It’s an interesting look at what Baltic life has been shadowed by Soviet era, but what is celebrated today. One of the most interesting pieces is by Karel Koplimets, the Case No 13, Waiting for the Ship of Empties. The small ship was made out of empty beer and soda cans and the artist sailed across the sea from Tallinn to Helsinki with it.
