2011 / Digital Betacam / color / sound / 1S / 45' 00

'Hyperborea' constructs points of intersection between memory – individual or collective – and imagination. Drawing on the many stories about the mythical region of Hyperborea, artist set out to locate it and travelled to the distant Northern territories. The expedition runs through the forests of the American Pacific Northwest, the faded palaces of Saint Petersburg, and the Gulags of Russia’s White Sea. On the trail of ancient vestiges, primary forests, mammoth fossils and ruins, the explorer is accompanied by the mysterious cloud of red smoke.
