Lands of Treasure
Animation work of IC-98
Art Museum Gösta 25.9.2021—6.3.2022
The starting point of the animation work is the story of a forest elf who, when he falls, leaves behind a trail of destruction.
Lands of Treasure describes the humankind’s search for direction in this world that resulted in a climate crisis. The journey across the “treasurelands” is a ritual during which ingredients are gathered for a new story that would oppose the present and enchant the world once again.
The Turku-based artist group IC-98 consists of Patrik Söderlund (b. 1974) and Visa Suonpää (b. 1968). IC-98 received the Finnish State Prize for Art in 2009 and represented Finland at the Venice Biennale in 2015.
