Artist presentation of the CoSA artist books and bee garden project, with a performative event by LOCUS
Friday August 24th 2018
By researching the spiritual in art we see a direct link between the current ecological crisis and a renewed spiritual connection to nature.
In order to expand the artistic research we invited various artists to create small editions of artist books about the CoSA theme.
The CoSA project involves artist books, a public art project “LOCUS bee sanctuary garden” as well as exhibitions and performance events.
At Cassata Drone LOCUS meditate on how the CoSA project relates to the main theme of Manifesta 12: The Planetary Garden. Cultivating Coexistence * and presents artist books by the following artists:
Merete Joelsen Aune (NO), Stefano Cagol (IT) Anna Daniell (NO) Thale Fastvold (NO) Margrethe Iren Pettersen (NO) Sara Rönnbäck (SE) & Daniel Slåttnes (NO) and Tanja Thorjussen (NO)
The event is kindly supported by OCA - Office of Contemporary Art Norway and realized in collaboration withCassata Drone in Palermo (IT).
