On Wednesday 12th of September, The Nordic House examines the great Ocean. What is hiding in the still and deep waters? Is it the seamonsters of our imagination? Or the more harsh reality; a sea of plastic.
The Nordic House hereby invites you to come examine the oceans with us. We start with an Art Reception with the works of Lena Lindahl (SE) with refreshments and an introduction by the artist, followed by a screening of the movie “A Plastic Ocean” and a closing discussion monitored by leading activists from Iceland.
Art Reception: Lena Lindahl (SE) Art Jewellery in the Foyer at the Nordic House (16-17 PM)
The swedish jewellery artist Lena Lindahl creates jewellery art inspired by old maps, sea monsters and bestiaries.
Imagination is a key ingredient in her jewellery made out of small samples of nature.
Lena Lindahl (SE)
Lena Lindahl has a Master of Fine Arts in jewellery and silversmithing. She is represented at the Swedish Design Museum and her jewellery art have been exhibited in various international jewellery shows.
Lena Lindahl will introduce her creations, and we will provide a glass of wine, while you enjoy the artworks.
A Plastic Ocean: Screening of the documentary followed by discussion (17-19 PM)
Every year, around 8 million tons of plastic ends up in our oceans. Initiatives to clean up the oceans and our environment in general are spreading all over the world. One of these initiatives are “World Clean Up Day” starting the 15th of September in Iceland. To get us prepared for the day, we will screen the movie “A Plastic Ocean” at 17 PM
The event ends with a discussion on how we can contribute to positive change for our oceans. As the movies states: “Change is possible – it starts with us”.
