Last year, AF reviewed Jaro 1 where two Residency Unlimited (RU) artists inhabit the space and through their unique works gave such a transformative experience with their art. AF came in from the pouring rain to be marooned in the Concrete Island featuring Magnus Pettersen and Marian Tubbs. The play on dystopia and created utopia had a great symbiotic verve curated by Maud Jacquin, RU Associate Curator, for Jaro 2. Olya Turcihin, AF photographer, navigated the packed gallery full of art goers marooned and happily seeking shelter from the ruthless rain to capture the damp but happy populace. It is a saving grace to see fresh art and bring together the unique community sheltered in the confines of mind stimulating work. No one felt leaving the island and rescue is not required!
