Spitsbergen- Barentsburg

Artistic research on Svalbard (Spitsbergen), 2018

While sailing around Spitsbergen I look at the northern landscape. What is investigated by 
scientists whom are concerned with the transience of this polar region?

I collect found materials and focus on arctic exploitation, natural processes, ecological experiments and archaeology. My research leads to photography, site-specific work, sculpture and installation.
