Lena Ortega: Living with the Subaquatic Through Dialogue, Accompaniment and Care in the Work of Robertina Šebjanič

Artist’s notebook of Lena ORTEGA, which was created during the work on the project Robertina ŠEBJANIČ: Line | +1233m -1233m

This time the work of Robertina ŠEBJANIČ rises above sea level in a vertical line from the depths of the sea, which represent her multi-year oeuvre. The sound work and the installation combine a cross section of the sea’s influence in a vertical band deep below and above the horizon.
