“The Arctic – While the ice is Melting” Exhibition [Stockholm]

“The Arctic – While the ice is melting” is a immersive exhibition planned for 3 years at the Nordiska Museet in Stockholm. Devoted to Arctic life and the fragile conditions of the region due to the global warming of our planet. Seeking to highlight the Arctic life and more particularly to bring awareness on the challenges faced by its 4 million habitant.

The giant cracked iceberg is the central element of the exhibition symbolizing a fracture between the past and the present, conceived and created in cooperation with design duo MUSEEA.

You can walk through the iceberg and discover the stories and objects that present a multifaceted history of the action of time on the ice and on the daily life of the inhabitants of the Arctic.

Two hundred photographs by Michel Rawicki, taken over 25 years during numerous trips from Alaska to Siberia, pay tribute to the bear polar whose fate has become the emblem of global warming.
