Listening Through the Dead Zones
Date and time6 – 24.8.2021
IHME Helsinki commission Listening Through the Dead Zones is a site-specific sound installation by the Norwegian artist Jana Winderen, in collaboration with Tony Myatt.
At the Rowing Stadium in Helsinki on the shore of the Baltic Sea the audience will be able to listen to different species of mammals, including humans, and to various species of fish and crustacea that inhabit the Ocean. Winderen has been investigating how human activity is influencing the dead zones in the Baltic Sea and similar environments close to shores and in lakes.
Winderen explores the way human beings interact with and live in their environment with other creatures and plants, and in particular shared sound environments underwater.
The installation is part of the Helsinki Biennial Inspired series.
