Arctic Perspective highlights the cultural, geopolitical and ecological significance of the Arctic and its indigenous cultures. In collaboration with the people of Igloolik, Kinngait, Iqaluit, Mittimatalik and Kanngiqtugaapik in Nunavut, Canada and other Arctic communities, artists and architects are devising a mobile media and living unit and infrastructure, powered by renewable energy sources. The unit will be used by Inuit and other Arctic peoples for creative media production such as film-making, communications and monitoring the environment, while moving, living and working on the land. The exhibition includes architectural models of winning designs from the Arctic Perspective open architecture competition by Richard Carbonnier (Canada), Catherine Rannou (France) and Giuseppe Mecca (Italy), with photographs, videos and maps from the project. The exhibition is open from 10am to 5:30pm on weekdays.
The Arctic Perspective Initiative (API) is led by artists Marko Peljhan (Slovenia) and Matthew Biederman (US/Canada) and this exhibition has been curated by The Arts Catalyst. API collaborators are Miha Bratina and Ziga Testen, and partners are HMKV (Germany), Project Atol (Slovenia), C-Tasc (Canada), Lorna (Iceland), The Arts Catalyst (UK).
