High Arctic
© Matthew Clark, UVA, 2010
The first show in the temporary exhibitions gallery of the museum's new Sammy Ofer Wing is 'High Arctic', a collaboration between United Visual Artists (UVA) and climate change charity Cape Farewell. The show consists of an installation that employs sound, light and sculptural form to create an immersive, shifting, abstracted landscape inspired by an expedition made by UVA's Matt Clark with Cape Farewell to the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. Thousands of columns fill the space, each representing a glacier in Svalbard, while a soundscape weaves the voices of arctic explorers over the centuries with contemporary poetry.
