A wonderful exhibition created by artist duo Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer. The exhibition features both poetic photographs and installations created in close collaboration with twelve artists and designers from Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
The Weather Diaries exhibition is filled with symbolism, textures and stories. Instead of focusing on seasonal trends, the exhibition digs deeper to explore the creativity of the artists and designers, make references to cultural identity, and scrutinise the influence of nature and weather.
Over the course of two years, Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer visited the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland to explore the influence of traditions and the natural environment on local artists and fashion designers. As opposed to traditional anthropologists, who use their cameras to capture communities and their culture in a scientific manner, Cooper & Gorfer transform their observations into poetic stories told through images. They turn their impressions into staged photographs, adding layers of color, textures and symbolism.
The Weather diaries were published in a beautiful book, a wonderful memory of art and fashion.
