Our member, Dr Liliana Janik has opened her exhibition on the rock art of the White Sea together with curator Mr J Park at the Ulsan Petroglyph Museum in South Korea.


The Rock Art of the White Sea is an international collaborative project initiated in 2008 is led and directed by Dr Liliana Janik (University of Cambridge) and Dr Nadezhda Lubanova (Karelian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences) has been working on 3D recording,  analysing and interpreting of the carvings and their locations since early 2000’s. The project has led to the creation of preservation by record archives of 14 sites of White Sea rock art, and has also investigated heritage aspects of rock art preservation in post-Soviet Russia.

One of the outcomes of this collaboration is the exhibition in the Ulsan Petroglyphs Museum entitled, "The Rock Art of the White Sea". The exhibition will centre on issues like: dating, recording, aspects of constructing visual narrative, the terrestrial and marine hunt and skiing. The exhibition can be visited between 24 October 2018 and 10 February 2019.
