Antarctica: Being In Time

In 2014, I was invited (second time) to be artist-in–residence, as part of the international programme (Antarctica). Funded by The Chancellery of the Argentine Government, Direccion National del Antartico Culturales and based at their scientific research stations in Antarctica. Antarctica is part of a continuing body of work, built further on my first visit in 2010.
