Lost Islands

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionSolo art productionpeer-review


In his work for Helsinki Biennial, Samir Bhowmik reflects on how humans take possession of nature with their infrastructure and technology. Lost Islands is a series of expeditions tracing the route of an imaginary subterranean and underwater cable through the island of Vallisaari, with the artist serving as tour guide and narrator.

The expeditions venture into the island’s topography, forested pathways, waterways, historical buildings, ruins and bunkers. Along the way, visitors are engaged and immersed in installations, film, theatre, contemporary dance, song, and experimental music. The expeditions will take place as a series of events staged on the island from June to August.
