Louisiana Museum of Modern Art's major, multi-faceted exhibition explores a wonderful, fragile, frightening and powerful world. ARCTIC is a story about dreams, destiny, adventure and beauty.
It is a tale of fear, fascination, desire, downfall, and survival in spite of everything. A quest for a location, real and imagined, that through the centuries has stirred up strong drives and emotions, fascinating and attracting artists, scientists, writers and adventurers alike.
The ARCTIC exhibition at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen, is science, heroic tales and visual art – reflected in longing, ideals and observation.
In one of its many strands the exhibition tells the story of five of the heroes and their historic expeditions which in the course of 100 years has each in its own way written a very different chapter of the great epic of Conquest.
A fundamental cultural narrative
The scope of the exhibition is broader than that of the current political, economic, scientific and ecological interest in the frozen top of the world.
"ARCTIC is one of our major fundamental cultural narratives," says Louisiana Director Poul Erik Tøjner, who conceived the exhibition.
"It is a story about how our culture expands and develops through images – images in which the unknown is reflected in the known and in which we celebrate the boundaries of our existence."
