Opening – January 7, 5 p. m.
The Arctic is the farthest geographical and my inner point. It's an endless, harsh, mysterious journey in search of something that lies far away. And it pulls inexorably. White spaces of ice and snow in the sunken blackness of the contrasting sky. From it comes out the ritual sounds of drums and bells, whispers, and clamor. The weightless smoke rises to the sky and zooms in a little, maybe even away from its Arctic.
