Spitsbergen- Barentsburg

Die Müdigkeit kommt

Artistic research on Svalbard (Spitsbergen), 2018

While sailing around Spitsbergen I look at the northern landscape in its current climatic form. I question what is seen by 
scientists who investigate the transience of the polar region. 

I archive photos, films, personal finds, studies of ecological experiments and archaeological knowledge on Arctic exploitation. This research leads to site-specific work and concepts for collaborative projects.
