Two newly produced video works by two internationally renowned artists Eugenia Lim and Anu Pennanen are in dialogue at Nicosia NiMAC Art CenterPUBLICS Helsinki – Composite Melbourne. The artist’s works both explore the current ecocide in an era of resource-based conflict and global environmental crisis.

In this exhibition, 5, 10, 100 YEARS FROM NOW (2023) by artist Anu Pennanen is based on petrol-station customers wild reflections on what they imagine the future will look like seen from the window of a Neste- gas station in Helsinki.
