Photographic exhibition inspired by the Arctic
New photographic work by Chris Blade, inspired by an artists’ residency in Svalbard, a mountainous Arctic archipelago, just 10 degrees from the North Pole. The work explores the artist’s response to the scale and remoteness of the landscape. Irish sound artist and composer Dr. Karen Power, who also took part in the artists’ residency has composed a soundscape which will accompany the exhibition.
