The 8th Art Ii Biennial will focus on imagining and sensing air and all its associated elements. The multi-faceted event will present works that explore these issues, offering new thoughts, expressions, and perceptions, and finding ways to give sensory presence to the invisible.
How can art approach the issue of air? How can its interconnected immateriality be communicated using the methods of art? How can we ‘look’ at air, and what will we see when we turn our attention to it? We are particularly interested in works and artists that combine art and science and consider sustainability in their practices.
The artists of Art Ii Biennial are selected through open call and invites from the curatorial team. The 2022 Biennial is co-curated by artists Minna Rainio and Mark Roberts and producer Jetta Huttunen.
The call for entries is open for artists living and working in Finland or abroad. Production and travel costs are covered up to 2200 euros in total per selected project against an invoice from the artists. The artworks will be presented at the Art Ii Biennial between 15 – 19 June 2022. Accommodation is offered in Ii during the Biennial.
The event is produced sustainably. We welcome artworks that are executed with a low carbon footprint. and encourage artists and visitors to arrive by bus, train or boat.
