Abstract

Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir will talk about her and Mark Wilson’s collaborative art project nanoq: flat out and bluesome . The project an artist survey of taxidermic polar bears in the UK between 2001-2006 traces amongst other in text and photographs the respective polar bear specimens and their contexts from a range of cluttered natural history displays through the measured, grand arrangements of colonial artefacts in stately homes to the genuinely domestic and unpretentious surroundings of private homes. Some are in storage, some neglected and some undergoing restoration. Each piece incorporates a text describing the provenance of the specimen, its place of capture or shooting, the name of the person responsible, the purpose of the expedition, its history in captivity, its age etc.
