Gocart Gallery

Visby, Sweden


In July 2012 the company Nordkalk were granted permission to quarry for limestone in the area of Ojnareskogen on Gotland, a small island in the Baltic Sea.

What will this area become in a few decades when that work ends? What will happen when all

the limestone is gone and Nordkalk have moved onto a new project? What will remain of this unique island? – A devastated nature, uninhabitable land and ruined drinking water for years to come.

The conflict in Ojnareskogen represents one of many focal points in the world that exposes conflicting perspectives on life and the consequences of them, and is the subject of our “On Sale” show.

Participating artists: Kristina Laurent, Edit Mag, Tina Messing, Mark Savior, C.Anders Wallén.

Gocart Gallery is run by The Gallery-Association in Visby.
