Tent on Cuverville Island
Frozen tent for the Antarctic-Biennale, 2017
The Antarctic Treaty of 1961 allows to visit the continent for research purposes only, which is why until today it has remained vastly untouched by civilization. Research, i.e. exploration of unknown territories is always a question of how well one is able to adapt to the conditions on the ground and advance further. Creating shelter from an absolute minimum of materials makes use of pragmatic technology while simultaneously appealing to one of the most primary instincts of man: satisfying his innate urge of discovery and settling on unspoiled land.
