Down in the Bog – Sporulation



Opening on 14 June.

In the second project of the EKKM’s 2024 season Down in the Bog – Sporulation, the Norwegian curator with Estonian roots Karolin Tampere together with artists, musicians and scientists will take a deep dive into the specific ecosystems of the peatlands. The exhibition that will open on 14 June is a chapter from Tampere’s three-part project Down in the Bog – Thinking with Peatlands that is framed around cultural, historical and contemporary changes in relation to peatlands in Northern Norway / Sápmi, Estonia and other selected locations. Along with the artworks on display, one can contemplate on the subject through workshops, concerts and field trips that are also part of the exhibition. These activities build a multisensory experience where sound, touch and smell become central vessels for inspiration and knowledge.
