‘A forbidding environment where the temperature rarely rises above freezing, yet one which for scientists offers a wealth of geological and glacial data including indicators of climate change. What perspectives can art offer on this terra incognita? Ten visual artists, one musician and three writers visited the Antarctic between 2001 and 2009 under the auspices of the British Antarctic Survey, supported by Arts Council England. This publication brings together imagery resulting from their residencies. Ranging from painting and print-making to sound, fiction, poetry and video art, this collection also includes two essays reflecting on visions and experiences of Antarctica.’
