We are pleased to share these images of our international touring exhibition Ice Lab: New Architecture and Science in Antarctica which has been running at Otago Museum in Dunedin, New Zealand since December 2014.
Commissioned by the British Council and curated by the Arts Catalyst, Ice Lab is the first exhibition of its kind, featuring architectural drawings, models, photographs and films that give the visitor a sense of what it takes to live and work in Antarctica.
As part of the events programme surrounding Ice Lab, Otago Museum have invited Dunedin artist, writer and independent researcher Claire Beynon to present her experiences of living in her very own “ice lab”. Throughout two summer research seasons in Antarctica, Claire accompanied scientists and divers working with American polar biologist and protistologist Dr Samuel Bowser. Throughout this presentation she will reflect on these life changing experiences, told through stories and images from her time on the ice, including an ongoing series of collaborative work in the fascinating field of art-science.
In This Place, Silence Has a Voice by Claire Beynon will take place on Thursday 19 February at 5.30pm. For more information please visit the Otago Museum website.
Ice Lab: New Architecture and Science in Antarctica is at Otago Museum until 1 March 2015.
