Halikonlahti Green Art is a collection of art exhibits which winds round the Bay of Halikko. The 2011 festival is the third of a series of 3 exhibitions exploring Art and Ecology in the Baltic Sea Region, focusing mainly on the aspects of landuse, energy, production, nutrition, waste and politics.

FoAM is participating with 2 art-works and 1 worklab.

In the installation "It is so dark inside the hive", by Christina Stadlbauer, an osmatic auditorium connects the human senses with the world of insects. The work is based on investigations and experimentations with honeybees. In the installation Christina uses mainly wax as concentrated medium to trigger our oldest, most primal sense proposing an unusual multi-sensorial visit.

'Phoefarium' -a Temporary 'Lapidarium' of "PhoEf"- by Bartaku contains sketches, video, ongoing experiments and photographs inspired by the increasingly intimate entanglement of mind and body with the transformations of light into electrical-, nutritional- and human energy. The works are micro-interventions, fragments of Bartaku's artistic research driven narrative "PhoEf: the undisclosed po├ęsis of the photovoltaic effect'.

Bartaku is also directing 'Temporary photoElectric Digestopians [TpED] Worklab #7 as part of a series of
co-creation worklabs in which the participants/creators are invited to reenact and build upon the 'events' leading up to the occurence of photoelectric bites on October 20, 2010 in Brussels [Be].

Halikonlahti Green Art is taking place at the Roundhouse of
Salo Art Museum Veturitalli, Mariankatu 14,
24240 Salo
Finland
