Louisiana’s autumn exhibition ARCTIC is an account of the descriptions and dramatizations of the magical, cultural and artistic attraction that the Arctic regions in general and the North Pole in particular have had for human beings for generations. The fascination of the Arctic, of the North Pole, is full of highly dramatic and tragic expedition stories, not rarely resulting in death for those involved.
It has inspired both poets and visual artists to create more or less imaginative visions of destruction and utopias, and still does so to a great extent. Science, sheer political imperialism and powerful commercial interests have also directed their attention to the far north.
ARCTIC is a crossover exhibition about the ways in which people with very varied backgrounds realize ideas, imaginings, dreams and visions of the unknown, and it incorporates both classic Romantic images and contemporary art, authentic expedition photos and scientific specimens, literature and sound. The entertainment industry follows on the sidelines all the way and produces images in the form of paintings, photographs, films, novels, dioramas etc., offering fear-tinged, joyous experiences of the great wastes.
