Arctic Hysteria – collected stories and research through contemporary art
Locus presents a fanzine that will touch upon the themes of the arctic region, mythology, shamanism, spirits and transformation. The publication is a research tool and will function as a collaborative artist book for the traveling exhibition Arctic Hysteria, which opens at Dikemark in Asker in the fall 2016, and will travel to St Petersburg in 2017 and Stamsund in the north of Norway in 2018.
The artists involved present text about their work and research process and new work in drawing, photography, painting, performance, sculpture and installation. In addition the fanzine has texts by a medical anthropologist, an art critic and a curator as well as 3 artists relevant to the theme.
LOCUS artists Thale Fastvold and Tanja Thorjussen will be present at the book launch at Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair 2016 at MoMa PS1.
The launch at NYABF is made possible by generous support from OCA.
