DESCRIPTION
This publication is a chronicle of Dark Ecology, a collaborative project between Sonic Acts and Norwegian curator Hilde Methi, held from 2014 to 2016 in different places around Norway and Russia. The project included research trips to the Barents Region: from Kirkenes and Svanvik in Norway, to Nikel, Zapolyarny and Murmansk in Russia. Inspired by Timothy Morton’s concept of ‘dark ecology’ and his philosophy of ‘ecology without Nature’, this publication rethinks the relationship between nature and art. Through a wide range of contributions, it addresses contemporary critical thought around the consequences of the Anthropocene, while also documenting and presenting the artistic work commissioned for Dark Ecology.
