We are pleased to announce an open call for an artist or artist group to create an outside piece for the facade of the Ice Age Centre building in Äksi, Estonia. „Look into my Ice“ is a part of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 programme. The project heightens empathy for ice, which is one of the most powerful indicators of the devastating impact of the human-caused climate crisis. As a result, this project makes a romantic statement in order to warm our feelings towards ice. We want to leave as little of an ecological footprint as possible when we build the outside installation. A key aspect of the project is the sustainable management of transportation, travel, and production materials.
The following elements could be included in the artwork intended for the Ice Age Centre’s wall:
A complete artistic concept for the outside installation (mural, wall piece)
An art installation fit to be installed outside
A growing installation/ mural
Negative carbon emission installation
Planning trip (slow travel)
Residency stay (flat, travel costs)
Artist fee 3000 €
Production costs (depending on the budget, min. 5.000 max. 7.000)
Release event at the end of August 2023
Communication/PR within the context of the European Capital of Culture Tartu programme starting in 2023
