Join us for a panel discussion with artists Jaanika Peerna and Riitta Ikonen in conversation with curator and advisor Zoë Foster.

Much of Jaanika Peerna’s recent work is a lament to glaciers and natural ice. Her ongoing project Glacier Elegy forms the central core of her new book ; the book presents an in-depth look at this iconic work, through essays, images of works and performances, as well as the artist’s own words. In doing so, it shows how a contemporary artist in her prime addresses the climate emergency.
Riitta Ikonen highlights themes such as climate change and the pollution of the Baltic Sea through her work. She also frequently examines the relationship between humans and the natural world. This is evident in her ongoing photography and sculpture project Eyes as Big as Plates.
Vax card and masks may be required.
