Skagerrak

In 2017 Karl started his first SKAGERRAK art project in cooperation with Kosterhavet Nationalpark and Koster Sculpture Park. From the shallow sandy and stony reefs in Sweden and Denmark to the depth of the Norwegian trench he wants to develop this idea with focus on human impact at this heavily trafficated strait, the increasing pressure on the ecosystem and the historical traces with the biggest sea battle of World War I and later the German invasion of Denmark and Norway.
Ytre Hvaler Nationalpark in Norway, Gullmarsfjorden as the first Swedish marine conservation area and Grenen i Denmark are the next steps.

After art walking in the Northwest Scottish Highlands in summer 2016 and dramatically feeling there the impact of civilisation on Nature, Karl started the Ghost Nets project which wants to put focus on plastic in the ocean and in specially fishing leftovers killing animals for the next hundreds of years. This project is integrating people of different ages. We will use ghost nets from the sea for installations, exhibitions and artefacts reflecting and mobilising opinions and engagement. Moby Dick is a special project running for children and students.
In 2019 the Ghost Nets project will be edited as an art book supported by the Stiftelsen Längmanska Kulturfonden.
