Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchExhibition


In its attention to the expansive frozen lands and seas of ice, the 80ºN exhibition contemplates the overwhelming might of nature, its beauty and its vulnerability. In each project, the artists depart from classical representations of heroic voyages of discovery enabled by engineering mastery. Gibson/Martelli invite the viewer to observe the Arctic from a first-person perspective. 80ºN is supported by a CAFKA / Christie Residency Program, Christie Digital & WorldViz, Arts Council England & QUAD.
