Red Snow is an exhibition, workshop and performance programme, promoting dialog about climate change and what it means for the lives of people living in the North Atlantic.
June 13 - August 23
The exhibition provides a setting for thinking about and discussing these issues: Ice floes appear in large paintings on the wall; a sculpture shows a woman as a polar bear; old Nordic songs are heard: 8760 time-lapse photographs run on a large screen, showing the life of a glacier; a poster presents scientific information about Greenland in the last ice age; we hear myths and stories about the origin of the world and the changes it has seen; sounds of the sea are heard as we walk among sculptures of people half-immersed in water; hanging sculptures show the gradual shrinking of Icelandic glaciers.
The group behind the exhibition includes not only artists but also scientists who have been researching the changes taking place and are alarmed at the consequences. Their research features in the exhibition alongside the art and we believe that art and science can come together to throw light on these issues and help clarify them and open up a discussion where everyone is invited to participate.
