LAB 2011 - biennial in the north
This summer was the first time I could visit the art biennial in Luleå: LAB 11. It is truly inviting, welcomes applications from all over the world. The biennial is the work of a group of artists, local art heroes!!! They are also behind the snow sculpture event that takes place every year. And now the webpage keeps me busy:
Kilen Art Group
Above: only two of my favorite pieces at the biennial by Sarawut Chutiwongpeti, Thailand and Roger Rigorth, Germany (download a so inspiring catalogue with his work here)
Another is a video I wanted to go swimming by two Finnish artists Marjukka Korhonen and Raimo Uunila, so clever. They are part of the Waterscape Project (link to blog) where you can see the film and other art projects about the water of our planet.
And there is so much more here, at Kilen...
