Dark Ecology 2015
Exactly 2 weeks ago we came back from a successful second Dark Ecology Journey. Over the course of five days, a group of more than 50 artists, researchers, curators, writers and organisers travelled to the Barents Region. Starting in Kirkenes in Northern Norway, we went to Murmansk in Russia, to Zapolyarny and Nikel, and back to Kirkenes.
The programme includes presentations of new commissioned works by HC Gilje, Margrethe Pettersen, Joris Strijbos, and Hilary Jeffrey, as well as lectures, discussions, guided walks, and concerts.
The Dark Ecology journey is for artists, theorists, designers, curators, scientists, writers, makers, and researchers who operate at the intersection of art, science and music, and who are interested in rethinking notions and concepts such as ‘nature’, ‘culture’, ‘ecology’ and ‘society’, and exploring new descriptions of the current 'state of affairs’.
