Out of the Sky, Into the Earth

Out of the Sky, Into the Earth, is a public art project by Public Art Agency Sweden in collaboration with Baltic Art Center. It triggers thoughts about life, care and co-existence on a damaged planet. Focusing on the visible and invisible life forms that populate our world, it presents two new commissions: The Swamp Observatory by Urbonas Studio – an Augmented Reality app that can be downloaded on mobile devices, offering an imaginative and playful experience of the future of Visborg; and Brakfesten/La Grande Bouffe, by Anne Duk Hee Jordan and Pauline Doutreluingne.

Out of the Sky, Into the Earth
From May 19 to September the sculptural installation of Brakfesten in Södra Hällarana will be open and possible to visit and interact with.

On August 27 an exhibition will open at the Gotland Art Museum about the process behind the projects where The Swamp Observatory app will also be launched in the Visborg area.
The exhibition will be open to the public until September 11.

Urbonas Studio was founded by artists and educators Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Vilnius, Lithuania. Urbonas Studio is an interdisciplinary research practice that facilitates exchange amongst diverse nodes of knowledge production and artistic practice in pursuit of projects that transform civic spaces and collective imaginaries. Urbonas are researching and teaching at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.

Anne Duk Hee Jordan is a Korean-German artist born in 1978. Her work includes drawings, hand-built robots, edible landscapes, sculpture, film and sound. It is mainly the other life forms, insects and plants that live alongside humans on Earth that she lovingly observes, invites and casts as lead characters in her art works.

Pauline Doutrelouingne is a freelance curator and educator born in 1982 in Belgium. Through her work she seeks to stimulate a cultural dialogue with a focus on ecology and de-colonial thinking. Her curatorial projects are dialogues and exercises into progressive imaginaries.


The project is curated by Edi Muka, curator at Public Art Agency Sweden, in collaboration with Helena Selder, artistic director of BAC.
