Artica Svalbard is one of Norway’s leading not-for-profit residency foundations. Based in Longyearbyen, Svalbard it is a place for thinking slowly, in a fast changing world. But what does it mean to be ‘in residence’?
Working with Svalbard’s natural cycle from the midnight sun to the polar night, we place great emphasis on deep thinking around some of the most pressing issues of our time. Challenging the perspectives of the polar regions and welcoming knowledge we don’t have, in order to inspire change. This exhibition brings together works by just some of the past artists, writers and researchers with a focus towards the QSPA residents, who have stayed at Artica in Longyearbyen over the last seven years. Showing mainly works-in-progress, we hope to highlight that a residency is many things, including the opportunity to think, challenge and inspire. There is no pressure to complete a ‘ finished work’, Artica is a place to test and sometimes fail.
Opening public preview at QSPA Bispevika from 18:00 - 20:00 on the 16 March. Exhibition continues until 14 May 2023. See here for full details.
