Full Artist List for 11th Edition ‘Can’t See’ Announced

Sequences Biennial is delighted to announce the full list of participating artists for its 11th edition, which will open to the public from 13–22 October in Reykja­vík, Iceland.Titled Can’t See, the Biennial explore the ever­-growing threat of ecological destruction by delving into spaces that cannot be perceived by the human eye, from the depths of the sea and layers of the soil, imagining the debris of the past and visions of the future.

The artist selection reflects the curators’ interest in fostering new and deeper connections between the Baltic and Icelandic artistic communities, spotlighting unique, decentralised narratives from these geograph­ical and cultural borders.With over 45 participants confirmed, the biennial will present new commissions and site­-specific installations, alongside artists’ existing works and for the first time, loans from Icelandic and Baltic museums.

The curators say: ‘‘Coming from Estonia and workingin Iceland with this diverse group of artists has been an exciting and thought-provoking process, exploring how their ideas matched with our own. It has also been equally thrill- ing to spotlight existing, sometimes rarely exhibited works from artists and museum collections, which are so valued and loved by locals. It has been a privilege to be an advo- cate for smaller, sometimes yet to be heard narratives.’
