We Meet at the Seaside

Sea Views 2019: We Meet at the Seaside exhibition in Dalsbruk, Finland presents works form five Nordic as well as five Asian artists: Anna Fríða Jónsdóttir (IS), Jo Kjaergaard & Leydi Giney Uyaban (DK/CO), Mauritz Tistelö (SE), Nayab Ikram (AX), Nuutti Koskinen (FI), Rain Wu (TW / UK), Jen-Pei Cheng (TW), Chih-Chung Chang (TW), Kuen-Lin Tsai, (TW) and Lesley-Anne Cao (PH).

The theme of the exhibition is based on our multiple and different perspectives and concepts of the sea. Our relationship with the sea is rooted in our different cultural backgrounds. With an open dialogue between artists from both the Nordic and Asia we produce alternative viewpoints and reflections.

Sea Views is a mobile art exchange platform that brings together artists from the Nordic and Asian countries. The artists in the exhibition have been working in the Örö island and in Dalsbruk during August 2019. The exhibition is a part of a two-year project where groups of artists are invited to work and exhibit first in Finland and the following year in Taiwan.

來至海洋於芬蘭達斯博展出五位北歐藝術家與五位亞洲藝術家的作品,參展藝術家分別是:安娜.佛利薩.楊恩斯德提爾(冰島)、尤佳(丹麥)與蕾蒂.幾內.烏雅班(哥倫比亞)、莫里茨.提斯特樂爾(瑞典)、娜亞博.伊克朗姆(奧蘭自治區)、努提.科斯基寧(芬蘭)、吳雅筑(臺灣/英國)、程仁珮(臺灣)、張致中(臺灣)、蔡坤霖(臺灣)以及萊斯里-安.趙(菲律賓)。

展覽的主題源自於我們關於海洋的不同觀點和多元概念。我們與大海的關係根植於我們不同的文化背景。透過北歐和亞洲藝術家之間的開放對話,我們產生新的觀點與反思。

來至海洋是一個移動的藝術交流平台,匯集來自北歐和亞洲的藝術家。2019年8月,藝術家們在歐若群島以及達斯博進行創作並舉行展覽。本展覽是兩年計畫的其中一部分,藝術家們首先至芬蘭創作展覽,並在次年於台灣進行相同計畫。
