Enjoy the capturing beauty of Marta Djourina’s monumental public art installation ‘Ashes of Ice’ – the details reveal the multilayeredness of her aesthetic concept which mirrors her narrative approach:

Djourina captured the process of melting ice through direct exposure on photosensitive paper and film. With a magnifying glass, she literally drew the burning power of the sun. Additionally to this, the work incorporates outlines of already lost world glaciers and polar ice expansion.This event is part of the international art and science initiative ‘Look into my Ice’.
‘Look into my Ice’ is a romantic initiative to enhance our emotions towards the coldest entity on Earth: Ice. The transeuropean project is part of the official program of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 and offers new ways to approach the disastrous speed of the disappearance of polar and glacial ice as a result of the human made climate crisis.
