Another North: Landscape Reimagined features the work of contemporary Nordic artists that use landscape to limn the boundary between the known and the unknown, reimagining it as a multivalent space at once familiar and otherworldly, visible and invisible. Comprising photographic and video works, the exhibition explores landscape as a place of complication, rather than revelation, and investigates channels into new ways of seeing.
The exhibition includes works by artists Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Ole Brodersen, Sigurður Guðjónsson, Simen Johan, Susanna Majuri, and Pentti Sammallahti.
Another North: Landscape Reimagined is organized and presented by the American-Scandinavian Foundation.
