Robertina Šebjanič is an artist, whose work explores the biological, geo-political and cultural realities of aquatic environments and the impact of humanity on other organisms. Her projects call for the development of empathetic strategies aimed at recognising the rights of other (non-human) species. In her analysis of the Anthropocene and its theoretical framework, the artist uses the terms “aquatocene” and “aquaforming” to refer to the human impact on aquatic environments. Her art work Aurelia 1+Hz / proto viva generator (artist proof) is since 2019 part of the BEEP Electronic Art Collection, Spain. Her works received awards and nominations at Prix Ars Electronica, Starts Prize, Falling Walls.

Sound of Troubled Worlds =
Songs for Serenity

Over the past years, the central focus of Robertina Šebjanič  research-based work has been the study of the aquatic environment and the impact of the human imprint on aquatic environments and its consequences/challenges.

She will present how her art - scientific research is conducted and how she combines the experience of the field trips and interaction in diverse and interdisciplinary collaborations into poetic artworks.

She will present her series of works ‘Aurelia 1+Hz’, which deals with animal-machine-human relationships, regenerative medicine, interspecies communication where the moon jellyfish are the main spectators.

In her latest work ‘Atlantic Tales’ she weaves together mythologies and sciences, history and future, fears and desires, continents, cultures, humans and more_than_humans. The story protagonists are the migratory basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus) and the flame shell (Limaria hians), a small species, endemic to the North Atlantic waters. Robertina had the opportunity to encounter both creatures during her residency on the RV Celtic Explorer scientific research vessel in Ireland.  ‘Atlantic Tales’ she weaves together the traditional Irish sean-nós style of singing, with a storyteller and field recordings from above and below the surface of the the Atlantic Ocean.

GUEST CURATOR

Curator Louise Manifold will join the conversation and will briefly talk about Aerial/Sparks (Galway’s European Capital of Culture 2020) in the frame of which Robertina Šebjanič joined research expeditions onboard the Marine Institute Ireland’s RV Celtic Explorer.
