Abstract

Resident in Iceland, artists Snæbjörnsdóttir and Wilson’s ‘Visitations: Polar Bears out of Place’ is a three-year project funded by Rannís, the Icelandic Research Fund. In the context of sea-level rise, the work takes specific historic and contemporary polar bear arrivals to the coasts of Iceland as a point from which to consider more widely, issues of population displacement, hospitality and increasingly excited migration patterns. Approaching the subject from a contemporary art perspective, in a cross-disciplinary collaboration with folklorists, anthropologists and an international art curator, the project probes intimate and geo-political contact zones, between humans and others.
