Darren Almond is participating in 'ARCTIC', a group exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, that explores the Arctic as both a science and a 'heroic tale' through visual art.
Louisiana Museum Director Poul Erik Tøjner, who conceived the exhibition, stated that 'ARCTIC' was 'one of our major fundamental cultural narratives...a story about how our culture expands and develops through images in which the unknown is reflected in the known and in which we celebrate the boundaries of our existence.'
Among the works on display is Almond's Arctic Pull (2003), a video installation described by the artist as a 'recollection of the harrowing journeys of Arctic explorers in the 19th and 20th centuries while suggesting, a broader sense, the historical trope of humanity's epic struggle to conquer the world's unknown territories'
