On Thursday, March 7th at 17.30, the Tartu-based landscape architecture trio Curated Biodiversity will give a public presentation at Kai Art Center. Anna-Liisa Unt, Karin Bachmann and Merle Karro-Kalberg will share their experience of making cities more livable for humans and other species. Participation with an exhibition ticket.
Running a small operation, we might not be able to change the world at the snap of a finger, but we can start with what we can handle. All global changes have started at the local governing level – many small decisions eventually amount to a large impact. How to start fixing things on a small scale? What can we really change? How can we, for example, deal with issues such as rainwater, degradation of soil, loss of biodiversity, and even extinction of species?
The Curated Biodiversity landscape laboratory has organised several experiments to make the city of Tartu more biodiverse. In the presentation, the curators of the project will introduce the experiments and how it has changed the urban nature.
The event takes place in the framework of the joint project In Search for a Garden beyond the Human Gaze. – a Nordic-Baltic perspective which brings together four art institutions around the Baltic Sea. Launched in 2023, the project establishes a network between Kai Art Center in Tallinn, Färgfabriken in Stockholm, CCA in Vilnius and Kim? Contemporary Art Center in Riga. This Nordic-Baltic network explores curatorial and other approaches available to art institutions in the context of climate change. The network has received project support from The Nordic Culture Point.
