SOMETIMES, IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO JUSTIFY YOUR POSITION MAKING ART WHILST EVERYONE AROUND YOU IS TRYING TO SAVE THE PLANET.

Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest place in the world, home to a few scientists, engineers and medical professionals all at the top of their game. Every day is about survival. Every day is about saving the planet.

And then Chris came along to make some Art.

For three and a half months Chris lived and worked alongside the folks at the British Antarctic Survey. He discovered that sometimes it’s very difficult to justify your position as an Artist whilst everyone around you is a Hero.

This is a recently reworked, power-point presentation-come-adventure story about overcoming hardships and celebrating difference via tales of carnivorous ducks, Ladybird books and a sledge built out of gold picture frames.

Antarctica is created by Chris Dobrowolski and produced by Artsadmin.
