120 Hours - Exhibition
500 futures of Svalbard
In the 2019 edition of the 120 Hours the team had the opportunity to collaborate with Artica Svalbard, a foundation that facilitates artistic and cultural activities on Svalbard.
The theme for the competition was to imagine a character, and explore how an invasive structure or installation created on behalf of this characters can impact Svalbard over a period of one hundred years.
After the successful jury process in ROM gallery, Oslo, the 120 Hours team was invited to exhibit the 500 entries in a house that is in the process of being torn down as it is one of several houses to remain in the danger-zone of future avalanches.
The exhibition space is divided into colored walls. This categorizes the entries into different themes, and each uniformly colored segment correlates to a category.
All the entries used in the jury process in Oslo, were neatly taken down, and transported to Svalbard to be displayed again.
