In RISE 2, six artist / citizens tell stories about rising sea level and the raw kinetic power of water: ferocious, beautiful, hell-bent. The points of focus in RISE 2 are varied: from inspirational forms of art and cultural diplomacy to turbulence.
The colour ‘blue’ emerged through the colonial impulse to extract resources such as alluring lapis lazuli and blue-green turquoise. The selected artworks show our unstable geopolitical region where rising seas converge with global frames of ecocide, human rights, political corruption and fossil-fuel extraction.
