Chorus sinensis is an audio-visual choral work dedicated to the Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo sinensis). The artwork emerges from the bordering territories of Great Gormorants and humans in the coastal areas of Bothnian Sea in western Finland. The situation between cormorants and humans in Finland provides a vivid demonstration of human-avian conflict, where birds are met with antipathy and a lack of understanding of the contextual drivers. This Nest translates the ecological debate raised by cormorants through the lens of art and culture, thereby generating new perspectives for public contemplation.
The curator for this Nest is Ulla Taipale.
