Guided tour: 'Down in the Bog: Hibernation'

Join a tour of the exhibition 'Down in the Bog: Hibernation' guided by curator Karolin Tampere.

Down in the Bog: Hibernation takes us on a deep dive into the curious ecosystem of peatlands.

With exhibited works by Ingrid Bjørnaali, Fabian Lanzmaier & Maria Simmons, Ensayos, Geir Tore Holm, Søssa Jørgensen, Concordia Klar, Enn Kärmas & Villu Järmut, Kristina Norman, Randi Nygård and Laura Põld, in addition to a discursive program with a range of Peatland workers from across the arts and science community, and live concerts by Elina Waage Mikalsen and Eva Väljaots.

Down in the Bog: Hibernation is an exhibition and a place for learning and sharing from peatlands around the world, arguing for the need for increased attention and care. Hibernation is the first of the three chapters of the overall project Down in the Bog - Thinking with Peatlands. Slowly growing, like peat forming, this project-in-process is composed by Karolin Tampere. The works on display, in addition to the discursive and live program, aim at large to give poetic, imaginative and dreamlike nutrition to more sturdy layers of awareness, knowledge and care. To learn together from the ecosystems of Peatlands.

Down in the Bog - Thinking with Peatlands is led by an ambition to create cross-pollinating meeting grounds for art, environmental issues and the public. The exhibition project emphasizes the sharing and embodying of knowledge and awareness to create attention towards the need for increased care of peatland areas, locally, nationally and internationally. Practically and conceptually the topic of peatlands will act as a guiding map and compass to learn about historical, cultural and contemporary changes in the environments around us in Sápmi, Northern Norway, Estonia and selected locations internationally.
