Climate & Art – Alternative Approaches

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review


The opening exhibition of Chappe – Art house by the sea, Climate & Art – Alternative Approaches, honours the memory of Albert de la Chapelle (1933–2020), Professor of Human Genetics, by highlighting – in accordance with the donor’s wish – environmental values and sustainable development.

The exhibition uses art and design to introduce a cultural perspective to ecological reconstruction. Its leading theme is fostering a more symbiotic relationship that is generated through the connection between people and extends to other species and the planet. The participants of the exhibition are artists and designers along with a biodesigner and a wild food chef, who, together, endeavour to offer alternative and constructive perspectives on the dystopic way of thinking that often prevails in climate change art.

Participating artists: Saara Alhopuro, Caracara Collective, Tanja Marjaana Heikkilä, Julia Lohmann, Mia Makela, N55 / ion Sørvin & Till Wolfer, Erik Sjödin, Studio Hendrikx (Bob Hendrikx), Superflex, Katja Syrjä, The Sustainable Darkroom (Hannah Fletcher, Noora Sandgren & Alice Cazenave), Jyrki Tsutsunen & Tatu Rönkkö.
