Art exhibition: Reclaiming Vision

HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme summer exhibition Reclaiming Vision at Levyhalli Hall

The cinematic artwork by Marjolijn Dijkman and Toril Johannessen stars aquatic micro-organisms that are invisible to the human eye without technical aid. Captured through a light microscope and projected onto a big screen, the life of the micro-organisms sampled from the brackish waters of the inner Oslofjord (Norway) and cultivated algae becomes a colourful drama. Microplastics and other synthetic debris collected from the sea also appear on the video.

For some time now, technical instruments have allowed us to see the tiny organisms that are vital to the ecosystems of our planet, but people often overlook the processes on the microscopic level. By changing the scale, Reclaiming Vision takes the viewer to an underwater world, reminding us of the significance of healthy micro-organisms to the well-being of our water systems and the people who depend on them. The work is shown in Levyhalli, Suomenlinna as a wide-screen version curated by Jenni Nurmenniemi.

Production: HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme, with funding from Kone Foundation. Reclaiming Vision was originally commissioned by Munchmuseet on the Move 2018, The Munch Museum (Oslo).
