Arctica: The Last Fragments

 Venue - Studio 12, Wandesford Quay, Cork

 Dates -  8th - 29th November 2019

 Times - 10.00-17.00

Artist and former physicist Angela Gilmour presents a response to her experience on The Arctic Circle residency program,  having spent three weeks on expedition during the Summer Solstice (midnight sun) in 2019. International artists, scientists  and innovators live and work aboard a Barquentine Tall Ship while sailing the waters of the international territory of Svalbard,  an Arctic archipelago just 10 degrees latitude from the North Pole. Arctica is a prehistoric continent of which the High Arctic and Svalbard are part of the remaining fragments, now also under threat from climate change.​

Angela Gilmour’s art practice is inspired by scientific observation. In this collection, she looks at the way nature is affected by  climate change, and how the actions of humans drive that change. Her work combines landscape, emotion and data to  emphasise the fragility of life.
