Gregor Sailer: THE POLAR SILK ROAD
29/08/2021 – 24/04/2022

“Over the course of four years, the Austrian photographer Gregor Sailer undertook several journeys to the human outposts of the North, enduring temperatures of up to 55 degrees below zero celsius, visiting military exclusion zones, conducting extensive research, working with an analogue view camera, and navigating the unpredictability of the Arctic—all experiences that have shaped these impressive visual worlds beyond the ordinary.

The Polar Silk Road deals with the economic exploitation of the Arctic regions, as well as the territorial claims of the respective neighboring states, and shows their consequences: geopolitical tensions, expansion and reactivation of military structures, and exposed research stations.”
