Our booth at Art Island is focused on the human interference in the ocean. How does it relate to industry and affect the natural ecosystems? We will present the works of two artists, Tanja Engelberts and Elisa Strinna, that revolve around the sea.

For Engelberts, the focal point is the offshore fossil fuel industry – she captured the oil platforms in the North Sea, abandoned due to exhaustion of wells. Applied on top of the photographs are paraffin or resin, by-products of the petrochemical industry. Elisa Strinna makes sculptures that resemble odd fossils or primitive ancient species that cohabitate with modern-day technology on the bottom of the ocean. Her work investigates the interconnection between humanity, nature, and technology, developing a critique of the Anthropocene era.
