Deep dive into Aquatic Artforms - the Exhibition reinterprets Scientific data of the predicted Climate impacts on the Adriatic Sea through contemporary Art Forms. 

The exhibition design is based on re-use and sustainable use of new materials: reconfiguration of drywalls from the former Exhibition, 700 plastic crates from the recycling centres of Slovenian coastal towns, borrowed Sea shells, 4m3 of wood waste from the Port of Koper, reconfiguration of the beautiful existing Salt Storage - all with an aim to minimize consumption and add to the Industrial and Cultural Heritage of the old Venetian town of Koper, Slovenia.   

Central blue Illuminated ring adds to the topic of “Under” - symbolizing the Water level of the Mediterranean Sea in this exact location in year 2200. 

By the Entrance the visitiors are confronted by a tall wall, then dive into 4m tall black curtains to enter the old stone walled exhibition space that shows very first Underwater Art Films from 1920’s. Tall walls out of plastic crates make a passage into the Large common Space dominated by contemporary Art pieces and a free-roaming robot. Passage in an existing wall has been added to expand the Space behind the boat resembling wall that also functions as an lookout balcony, overviewing the deep main Exhibition space. The path continues in a circular way and ends in a pitch - black room eqiupped with an infrared camera in a mirrorlike surprise.
