(23rd of August – 7th of September 2023)

photographic lumenprints with arctic sun, glacier ice, algae, plastics, egg shells and found objects on location,
created during the journey round Spitzbergen, on board of expedition boat Cape Race
and on the land and coasts of Spitzbergen.

„My name is Silence. Silence is my bivouac, and my supper sipped from bowls.
I robe myself mornings in loose strings of stones. My eyes are stones; a chip from the pack ice
fills my mouth. My skull is a polar basin; my brain pan grows glaciers,
and icebergs, and grease ice, and floes. The years are passing here.“

.

from Annie Dillard. „Teaching a Stone to Talk“
