Climate extremes, disrupted habitats, and sea level rise, like the tip of an iceberg, are the most apparent elements of a much bigger concern. Through diverse media including photography, digital prints, sculpture, video and sound, the work of eleven BC-based artists explore climate change from different perspectives.

Conversations with Landscapes: 45 Days in Oqaatsut
January 22 to April 4, 2021

Lenka Novakova
In Conversations with Landscapes: 45 Days in Oqaatsut, Montreal artist Lenka Novakova builds an immersive environment inspired by nearly two months spent in a small coastal community on the west coast of Greenland, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle. Her days were spent observing, thinking and engaging with the contemporary life of local Inuit communities near Greenland’s Ilulissat Icefjord, the sea mouth of one of the fastest and most active glaciers in the world. Using materials related to fishing and hunting, she reflects upon the Anthropocene and the challenges it brings to life and culture.

The project has been developed with the support of Arctic Culture Lab.

Please join Lenka Novakova on the Two Rivers Gallery Facebook Page for a live
introduction to her exhibition Conversations with Landscapes: 45 Days in Oqaatsut, an immersive video installation.

Lenka’s latest research-creation project, Conversations with Landscapes, explores the performance of landscape and investigates how immersive and participatory environments can engage science and technology in the articulation of the pressing issues of the environment and climate change. Thematically, the focus of this particular project is on the ocean, the atmosphere and the weather. It explores how local communities respond to climatic changes and attempts to recreate these experiences within the context of immersive environments and performance.
