WHAT IS CHRISTMAS LIKE IN ANTARCTICA?
So, how big a celebration is Christmas in Antarctica? Not very - is the simple answer. Summer on scientific bases is a time of great activity and comes right in the middle of the time limited work season. In addition to this, everyone is away from their family and loved ones. There is also none of the build-up to Christmas that exists in much of the world. No advertising on TV (no TV), no articles in newspapers and magazines (no regular newspapers and magazines), no street decorations (no streets), no shopping (no shops) and none of the elaborate planning and shared family traditions.
Some, however, positively enjoy the fact that there isn't any of the last-minute shopping, family obligations or other stress inducing aspects of the season! =) Photo credit: http://www.thecampingcanuck.com/christmas-antarctica

In occasione della 57a edizione della Biennale di Venezia 2017, verranno esposte per la prima volta all’Antarctic Pavilion alcune opere, le foto e i video realizzati durante la spedizione artistica Antarctic Biennale. L’Antarctic Biennale è una spedizione artistica, sotto il patrocinio dell’UNESCO, iniziata il 16 marzo 2017 da Ushuaia, la città più a sud del mondo, dove i circa 100 partecipanti si sono imbarcati sulla nave di ricerca “Akademik loffe”. I partecipanti hanno viaggiato per circa 2.000 miglia nautiche (4.000 km), effettuando più di dodici sbarchi sulle rive della penisola antartica e sulle isole che circondano il continente. Complessivamente, sono stati eseguiti oltre 20 progetti artistici, tra cui spettacoli, installazioni, mostre ed esperimenti di sound art, oltre a più di 15 sessioni di ricerca e discussioni filosofiche

By Miguel Petchkovsky: "The energy generated by this experience in one´s personality and emotional state of mind is converted into what may be called a powerful creative force that acts as a fuel for your imagination and takes your mind to the lands yet to be explored.
This driving force of motivation comes from the collection of moments that will remain in my memory forever. The Drake Passage was the border. Crossing it meant stepping out of your comfort zone and saying goodbye to the everyday monotony that rules your life. It was like entering another dimension (and another dimension it was!), becoming exposed to a huge amount of new information from experts in various spheres. It inspires to re-imagine and learn. <...> Trying to figure out what was going on, I got lost and confused. What an amazing experience, incomparable to anything else in my life! Was it because of the magnetic field of Antarctica? Or the unusual light? Or the unpredictability of the place, the mysterious sea, the desolate wilderness around us, or something in the Antarctic air?.." #AntarcticBiennale #AntarcticBiennale_participants #AntarcticBiennale_inspiration

By Lisen Paula Schultz: "For me, the greatest of all experiences was the close encounter with humpback whales. They played around us and beneath us, in what felt like a wonderful eternity. One of them shot up her magnificent head above the surface and I looked straight into her eyes. It was like looking into ancient history.
Almost as beautiful was to see the faces of my fellow travelers. They were faces of wonder. We all turned into five-year-olds. We could not stop ourselves from standing up in the boat and the air was bubbling with laughter. Pure happiness! The guides were as excited as we were. They said they had never experienced anything similar. Perhaps they say that to everyone, but it does not matter. I am so grateful that I was there." #AntarcticBiennale #AntarcticBiennale_participants #AntarcticBiennale_inspiration

Unique project at the unique place. The first ever Antarctic Biennale took place right in the heart of icy Antarctica! TV News Reporter at Rossiya 24, Ekaterina Gracheva and her colleague Azat Otogonov share their impressions.

Alexander Ponomarev: 'I thought up this exhibition as a process, voyage, movement, and self-development.This is a true adventure with unpredictable outcome. We only set development framework with a varied range of ways to go.
Artworks can sustain harsh exhibition conditions: they can be dismantled, moved and installed in various locations and contexts. The weather affects installations and performances, and our weather-focused artworks are designed to interact with wind, water, and ice. Artworks of another type are installed onboard and create a theatre of activities while we travel across Antarctica. As a result, the vessel transforms into a moving art venue.' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4TpfkBYnEw&feature=share

Antarctic team sincerely thanks Lisen Paula Schultz for her charming story! "Today, I met 60 kids aged 6-8 at a school in Stockholm and shared some stories and images of art, science, places and creatures in the 1st Antarctic Biennale. What a wonderful experience! I was met with full attention, serious reflections, laughter, awe and challenging questions. "If trees make oxygen, and there are no trees in Antarctica, how could you breathe there?" "If there was no land in sight and the ship was surrounded by mist, how could you find your way to Antarctica?" "The naked man, how long could he stand upside down in the cold and what happened to him afterwards?" "Would a whale fit in this room?" "If we continue burning oil like we do now, how long will it take before the ice is gone?" "How could the ice make sounds?" "Where did you sleep, what did you wear and what did you eat?" I think the combination of curiosity, care and creativity is what will bring humanity into the future, and the kids I met today had all of that. Thanks, #AntarcticBiennale!" #AntarcticBiennale_participants #AntarcticBiennale_inspiration

By Adrian Dannatt: "MY FIRST EVER ICEBERG! Amazing, there it is on the right side, huge weird green and blue object as if lit from within, just like that carved architectural modelling blue-foam so belovèd by Rem Koolhaas. From side it looked like a sunken ship, bridge sticking up in the air, nature mimicking its own potential, visual echo. Pondered how big compared to the one that sunk the Titanic and smart Barbara Imhof reminds me, “ but it’s only the tip of the iceberg.” Never before so aware of the reality of the phrase. It looked very absolutely freezing and inhospitable, waves crashing hard against it, so cold. <...> Surprisingly like the Alps but with the sea level risen up nearly to their peaks, if you could imagine Mont Blanc with the ocean lapping bang up against it near the summit. SO huge and so inhospitable and the continuous weirdness of the blue light. Thick dark band of the sea, dark band of the higher sky and then whole layer of radiant light blue in the middle, refracted from the whiteness of snow." Photo credit: Kaspersky Lab

Art at the End of the World: A Diary from the Antarctic Biennale
By Darrell Hartman:
A typical sailing tour of the Antarctic Peninsula is a focused encounter with Mother Nature, a journey through icy tundras, past humpback whales and epic vistas — so I’m told.
But the expedition I took there last month, aboard the 117-meter-long Akademik Sergey Vavilov, as part of a project called the Antarctic Biennale, was anything but typical. It came replete with art installations, salon discussions, and a cast of colorful international characters — artists, scientists, and philosophers — not to mention a powerful sense that nothing quite like this had been ventured before.
A case of overstimulation seemed inevitable. And that’s precisely what I was feeling when the Biennale’s 10-day cruise ended on March 28th, the dream of an “art adventure” in the South Pole finally realized after years of planning by organizer and artist Alexander Ponomarev.
But I had it easy. I was not one of the young staffers answering to Ponomarev; nor was I part of the One Ocean expedition team, fielding requests from anxious artists while herding them and another several dozen passengers along. No, my job was simply to listen and watch.

DIARIES of Antarctic Biennale
MARCH, 20
Time: 06:00
Location: Pacific Ocean

Longitude: 67°27' W
Miles Sailed: 700 Nautical Miles
Next Point: Antarctic Circle
Air / Water Temperature: 4°C / 2°C
The sea looks just the same as yesterday, and we are swallowed up by fog: you can barely see your hand in front of your face. We've completely lost the sense of time but Yasuaki Igarashi from Japan is willing to get it back. After breakfast he introduces one of the most poetic projects of Biennale. The artist teaches us how to bundle “kumihimo” (traditional Japanese technique of braiding yarns to create colored cords) so that later we play with a kite in Antarctica, using these cords, made by ourselves.
Meridians, running between the South Pole and the North Pole of the Earth, define a worldwide system of time zones. All meridians converge to one point in Antarctica. The participants of Antarctic Biennale bring their time from their countries or regions to the White Continent. Bundling yarns of kumihimo, we share our heartbeats. Every yarn is a symbol of a meridian, and the idea is to bundle a new time zone for everyone.
At 11:15 the ship’s foghorn booms and we all race out on top deck. WE'VE DONE IT! After two days tackling the Drake Passage, we are now crossing the Antarctic Circle!! We all gather on deck to celebrate - and take a picture, of course!
We are almost there. <to be continued>

VESTIBULE is a site-specific video installation made by Juliana Cerqueira Leite from Brazil that explores the contradictions, both physical and ontological, between what is seen and what is felt in a shifting environment. VESTIBULE absorbed its specific context – a moving ship in Antarctica, and used bodily experiences of association and disassociation with the environment to probe the potential consequences of these changes in alignment and allegiance. The work invited participants to sit on modified chairs that are motion stabilized – hanging free from the ship’s pitch and roll – to watch videos that shift between CCTV footage of the Antarctic landscape and four short films including training for helicopter-on-water crash survival and a dance film shot in Central Park.

Alexis VJ Anastasiou, a visual artist from Brazil: 'A strong current was moving the ship and the iceberg and any composition only lasted a few seconds before the elements destroyed it. The format of the iceberg was so exotic, almost like a 200m wide sculpture with a huge hole, that I quickly changed my mind - no the right piece for caveman art." March 21, 2017

The day goes on with other presentations: young Dr Susmita Mohanty, CEO of Earth2Orbit and keen on art and science, talks about her underwater dance experiment. Paul Rosero Contreras originally from Ecuador and already been to Antarctica, presents his work based on research of Chilean neuroscientist, “Now you are listening to two different frozen lakes.” Shama Rahman, BBC actress, singer, gives a talk about ‘anti-disciplinary’ possibilities.
At 6 pm we have a group chat ‘The Antarctic Aperitivo Club’ on Utopia that reveals some shoking facts about the White Continent. We learn about whales killed here at highest numbers to make glycerine for bombs, tourists who come every year and despite restrictions act violently towards nature. It turns out to be that like any continent in the world, Antarctica do face serious problems. The talk leaves us with a feeling of unease.
Meanwhile the Vavilov giftshop becomes a workshop for Argentine artist and engineer Joaquín Fargas, who is building two “Glaciator” robots that compact snow into ice to create glaciers and preserve the Antarctic environment. Looking at the him so focused on his work, we come to understand even better why we're here. A strong urge to protect one the purest places on Earth inspires each of us to create.

Sketches of “Alchemy of Antarctic Albedo (or Washing Pale Moons)” by Alexander Ponomarev. He has transformed Leonardo’s drawing from the Codex Leicester illustrating Earth’s projections of reflected sunlight and the formation of the pale glow of the Moon into air balloons drifting underwater and washed the pale Moons to Albedo whiteness by means of Antarctic alchemical distillation in salt water.

“Penelope has a voice” (2017) is the contribution of Eulalia Valldosera (Spain) to the Antartic Biennale. The artist decided to stay in the Pyrenees to engage, by means of telepathy, with several animal species of Antarctica, asking them for their feelings towards the expedition and towards humanity and recorded their voices in six messages that were sent to the crew
that listened to them on board periodically. Project’s webiste: www.eulaliavalldosera.com/penelope/

Another 300 miles, and we're still dancing the Drake Passage shake. It's getting colder which means that soon Antarctic shores will appear on the horizon. The day starts with morning yoga at 7 am for those who are up with the lark. Feels so good to warm up properly and relieve tension throughout the body! A bit of stretching - and we're ready for a brand new day.
After hearty breakfast there is Outdoor Gear and Boot Fitting session for everyone, then comes mandatory briefing by our inspiring leader Alexander Ponomarev, as enthusiastic as always, who talks about the pristine environment of Antarctica. To protect it, the Antarctic Treaty was signed in 1959, entered into force in 1961 and has since been acceded to by many nations. In fact, the continent belongs to nobody, and only here we have been freed from cash, credit cards, wifi, nationalism. Today 60 signatory countries all believe to preserve it, “for peace, science, and now art.” Protecting the beauty of Antarctica means following strict rules: - Taking rocks, feathers, bones, earth is only allowed by permit from your home government. - No smoking ashore. - No rest stations. - Writing your name in the snow is not allowed either!
To sum up, it's all about leaving no trace behind. Well, at least, strolling around is permitted - and there's hardly anything else we wish for! <to be continued>

"Once I read an article on the internet about the biggest bird egg in the world. It was found on the island of Madagascar in Africa. In the photo a scientist was holding the egg, and it was almost the same size as his head. And nonetheless, this kind of bird disappeared some hundreds years ago," Zhang Enli, an artist from China, recalls.
The article inspired him, and he decided to make a similar “egg” for the Antarctic Biennale. Zhang Enli used a real egg as a reference. It is not a ball, it is a container. The artist put it in Antarctic snowfields to let people see and feel its presence there. A huge mysterious egg in the wilderness of today’s Antarctica. “Egg” is hypothesis, a discovery that might happen. The unknown exists in the land where people have never lived. The South Pole, the North Pole, the deepest depths of the ocean.

In “Space Fish” (Raumfisch), Julius von Bismarck realizes a site-specific performance by letting a tropical freshwater fish swim through the cold waters of the Antarctic Sea, facilitated by a custom swimsuit.
The work’s thematic background revolves around human exploration. The swimsuit resembles a spacesuit, echoing man’s drive to explore and the romantic connotations of discovering new worlds. Referencing man’s first Antarctic expeditions, the fish reimagines the subject of the adventurer.
The performance also emphasizes the role of tourism; travel for pleasure. It is also the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists. Usually, the comfort of tourism is the preserve of humanity alone. In Space Fish, von Bismarck dives into the business of attracting the fish, offering a chance to experience the human luxury of movement to anywhere in world.

THE PHENOMENON OF NATURE OR 99 LANDSCAPES WITH TREE
series of performances by Andrey Kuzkin
I want to fall off the floor and stuck the head into the asphalt,
Swinging my feet like branches of a tree.
Andrey Kuzkin (1996)
For this project the Russian artist has dug holes in many places: against the sweeping panorama of Siberian hills or next to Big Ben during an Occupy demonstration. He inserts his head and torso into these holes, his lower body dangling in the open air. So far he has given about 40 performances, including those in New York (USA), Cape Town (South Africa), Bat Yam (Israel), Kiev (Ukraine), Krasnoyarsk (Russia) and now in Antarctica.
This project is about the man and the Earth. The Earth and the man. About our need to live and inability to understand. About the desire to become a plant or a beautiful tree, and the absurdity of this desire. It conveys the metaphysical idea that wherever you are, you are going to face the same situation.
In 2010 the performance was first given at the festival "Music there - music here" near Vienna in Austria. Andrey Kuzkin says that immediately after the festival he remembered a lithograph called 99 Landscapes with a Tree made by his father, Alexander Kuzkin, with 99 rectangles, where in each piece there is a tree painted in a unique manner. The artist came up with an idea to repeat this performance 99 times in different parts of the globe, and then make a film with 99 scenes along with the fragments of the lithograph made by his father.

“Egg” by Zhang Enly is a hypothesis, an assumed discovery of an archaeologist finding life. The unknown exists in a land where humans have never lived. The South Pole, the North Pole, the depths of the Earth, any place humans haven’t reached.

“The solid state of matter” by @gustavdusing
Easy to carry and fast to construct, the tent has been Antarctica‘s bestknown architectural typology, employed by the first explorers in the 19th century and used for expeditions to the present day. “The Solid State of Matter”, a tent-like structure of ice, was erected at a key point on the vessel‘s journey. The translucent skin and the cold white of the ice will blended into the surroundings, creating a space that is strange and yet familiar to the materiality of Antarctica. Photo @antarticbiennale

DIARIES of Antarctic Biennale
MARCH, 16 'A most astonishing descent into Ushuaia with the mountains covered in snow, small pools in the rocks so crystal clear one longed to swim, pure streams and nobody at all, no habitation, forest and huge sky and no sign human intervention. Like highest Scotland and fjords but so distant from all ordinary domestication, true wildness, emptiness, the sharpness of the air,' writes Adrian Dannatt, a correspondent of The Art Newspaper.
It is March, 16 and the southernmost city in the world Ushuaia, also known as La Fine del Mondo, is welcoming the participants of the 1st Antarctic Biennale who have come here from all over the globe. Just a single day left before we set sail to Antarctica! We have been waiting for so long! It is the starting point of our journey, the very beginning.
Tonight all participants gather on board the ‘Akademik Sergey Vavilov’ ship and have a welcome dinner. Actually, many of us have already made friends through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter but it is the first time we see each other in person. Anticipation is in the air, and everyone seems so ready and excited about joining the expedition to the end of the world and back. It is also a great honour for us to see the mayor of Ushuaia Federico Sciurano today and hear his warm greetings and wishes.
The first evening together ends with amazing videomapping on ‘Akademik Sergey Vavilov’. Our home for the next 12 days... #AntarcticBiennale #AntarcticBiennale_participants #AB_participants #AntarcticBiennale_inspiration #AntarcticBiennale_artists

“Winter Landscape” by Sho Hasegawa is an open-ended project which has been progressing since 2011. It has included trips to frozen lakes, rivers and canals of various winter lands. The third venue was the ice of the Antarctic.
The concept for this project is to go on a journey to natural ice, to skate on the ice, and to draw a landscape picture there to document the scene and memorise the experience. This whole process, however, is carried out with specially-made ice skates. The skates are cast with one side made of bronze and the other made of aluminium so that they work together as a Galvanic cell that generates electricity. At first they are used for skating, and then they are placed on the ice and connected with cables to the drawing box. The electricity that has been generated is then used to draw landscape pictures. This drawing box is, in fact, a small portable dark room that contains photographic film and a light pen powered by the electricity generated by the ice skates. The light pen can be grasped with a light-insulated glove from outside. This light pen and photographic film are like the pencil and paper used to draw
landscapes.

- Fantastic! - Absolutely amazing! - It was AWESOME! - I'll never forget it! - Thanks everyone for this incredible journey!
We keep receiving so many thank you letters that it feels like we're still sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on board the ‘Akademik Sergey Vavilov’ research ship. It is taking us to the snowy lands of the White Continent where the contemporary art will soon reveal itself through breath-taking installations, live performances, charming music and brave experiments.
Artists, architects, researchers, poets, writers, musicians, philosophers... It was more than 100 of us, and during these 12 days that we spent together each of us was involved in an experience that was nothing but pure magic. We have done remarkable things together, we have built much more than strong friendships, becoming the brand-new movement that opens new horizons in the world of art.
Our team expresses sincerest thanks and appreciation to all participants of the 1st Antarctic Biennale! It has been a week since the expedition ended, and we hope everyone is already back home safe and sound. New photos, videos and comments keep coming, and it is so great to see all participants sharing their impressions and memories!
Of course, it is not the end. We look forward to seeing everyone again very soon in Venice where we will show all the projects at the 57th International Art Exhibition in May. And here, on social networks we will be sharing our daily diaries of the Antarctic expedition with all the photos and videos. Off we go, stay tuned!

Following her recent work on patterns in lithology and geology, during the Antartic Biennale trip Yto Barrada created a new work with dyes and available materials on board a ship in the Antarctic.This project is about experimenting with natural dyes on textiles, creating unique sedimentation flags and sculptures. Barrada used ice dye and bundle dye using traditional techniques to create patterns. Barrada made use of the natural and botanica l resources available on the boat such as minerals, flowers, kitchen leftovers and food scraps. The constraint of working with materials available on board and on the terrain alone was deliberate. Working in this way resulted in a kind of chromatic record of the journey, like an elaborated photographic technique, a sample book of all the colors produced.

Based on the vision of the artist Tomás Saraceno, the Aerocene project is developing a series of airfuelled sculptures to achieve a carbon-emissions-free journey around the world. The Aerocene sculptures become buoyant only by utilising the heat of the Sun and infrared radiation from the surface of Earth. Aerocene, developed by the non-profit organization Aerocene Foundation, aims to create and horizontally distribute new solutions and technologies that raise public awareness on climate and the current crisis through participativo and collaborative actions: launching sensors and devices up to the sky in a fuel-free way.
