By Water


BY WATER – Icelandic artists on the shores of Finland, is a major exhibition mounted by the Pro Artibus Foundation, which will extend across four exhibition spaces, and outdoors in the town of Tammisaari, in summer 2016. The project continues the series of exhibitions of Nordic contemporary art produced by Pro Artibus, and is the most extensive showing of Icelandic contemporary art ever held in Finland.

The theme of the exhibition is the relationship between water and people. The starting point is the significance of water in Icelandic culture and society. In Iceland as well as Finland the sea has been something that both divides and unites. Throughout the history of humankind the question of water and its use, ownership of water and its conservation and protection, have been interwoven with culture, trade, industry and art. This everyday theme, humankind’s dependence on water, is a good starting point for an exhibition that presents the diversity and richness of Icelandic contemporary art.
