Photographer/sculptor Anna Ãâhlund and light designer John Pettersson have created the first “ski in ski out” photography and light exhibition in the world.
The ephemeral exhibition, located in a separate snow and ice building next to the Icehotel, is on now to melting time, around April 2013, in JukkasjÃ¤rvi, Sweden, 200 km north from the Arctic Circle.
Says Ãâhlund, “We wanted to capture the momentary, perishable and ever shifting Arctic light and life of the ICEHOTEL and JukkasjÃ¤rvi.”
“We have to play an active role to capture the moment and to experience every day, not letting life pass us by but we also must let nature have it’s own cycles of life.”
“We both work with the arctic light as a source of inspiration and in this exhibition hall the light experience takes 15 minutes.”
“The light is shifting slowly in all the pictures and in the hall, coming and going very sublime.”
‘ICEHOTEL – a warm story about a cold place’ is also the title of the companion book by Ãâhlund that contains the images seen in the exhibition.
