“Antarctic Traces” reflects on the history of human activities on South Georgia, Antarctica. Sealing and whaling can be seen as exemplary ways how humans deal with nature (to this day). The artist is interested to investigate what nature looks like after human exploitation and to explore the physical (industrial) ruins as well as the void we have left behind.
