Finnish Art Agency is happy to announce the launch of Augmented Geology at KARST on June 9th 2017. The group exhibition deals with the thematics of representations, speculative entities, hybrids and the relationship between the physical and virtual reality. How does the man made technology affect the physical and social environment we live in. Augmented Geology recreates a laboratory of artworks that research and represent the natural and the virtual science of rocks, and the possibilities to recreate natural and solid materials. The exhibition brings together installations, video works and sculptures by six international visual artists: Anna Estarriola, Lola González, Maggie Madden, Nabb+Teeri and Niamh O’Malley. The exhibition is organized and curated by Finnish Art Agency.
KARST is Plymouth’s largest independent contemporary art venue in Plymouth, comprising a free public gallery space and artists’ studios. KARST was founded in 2012 in the industrial Millbay area of the city and aims to be a test-bed for experimentation: from conceptually complex group shows proposed by international curators to projects focussing on individual artists or artistic collaboration.
