Working Projects 2020

Description of Roman Kroke’s project proposal for the working scholarship “Fine Arts 2020″ by the Berlin Senate:

The objective of the two installations consists in developing a unifying artwork which comprises the central motifs of his 3-year research on the topic “Plastic pollution of aquatic environments – climate change – sustainable development – biodiversity” (2017-2020). Summary of these past interventions: CLICK.

The photo slideshow in the background documents Krokes research on the central HEXAGON-metaphor as well as some of the unique workings materials gathered during his crossing of the Pacific Ocean on board of the the German research vessel SONNE (e. g. sediment and water samples from the ocean ground, oxidated iron from the body of the ship). An important part of the 2020 project is to develop techniques which will allow him to work these materials into the canvasses previously prepared during the installation LIFT TO THE OCEAN BED.
